What expression is represented below?

Human waste plumbing / to creep

Wolves home oceans
Wolves home oceans
Wolves home oceans
Wolves home oceans
Wolves home oceans
Wolves home oceans
Wolves home oceans
Wolves home oceans
Wolves home oceans
Wolves home oceans


Hint

This is one of those synonym type of solutions. The answer is two words and below is a break up of the clues to help solve and combine them. Please note that each separation isn't necessarily one syllable. I have indicated how many syllables make up each part of the word:

1st word: Human waste plumbing (2) / to creep (2)
2nd word: Wolves home (1) / oceans (1)

There is one more thing to figure out but that is fairly obvious so I'll leave that to you ;o).

The whole answer describes a condition that isn't particularly good and someone experiencing this needs help.

This one is so hard I almost killed myself trying to solve it! Great job coming up with this one.

Tendencies was not a problem. Sewer was reasonble. Sidle was difficult because who would really think it is among the synonyms of creep. But the hints were useful. Very creative.

Thanks all.. it was a bit of work to get it to do what I wanted and it is tough to always get it completely watertight... I'm pleased you enjoyed it though - thanks for the comments.

That's so amazing! How did you come up with something like that? I wouldn't have the time!!

Tricks of language and my brain tend to go hand in hand Jiminy... honestly I scare myself sometimes with some of the things that come out of my noggin. I do enjoy spending time on a teaser though to try and get it as tight and 'clever' as possible. Thanks for stopping by ;P .

As an editor who has read every one of Dsquared's submissions, I would like to add that it frightens me, too. ;)

LOL!... Now they know the truth Bob, you didn't have to go tell 'em that .

I agree, this one was pure genius!!
I had the 'tendencies' part pretty quick, but that last part had me quite stumped!! Beautiful!!

Really well thought out, but don't wolves live in lairs and foxes live in dens? I would have got it quicker but was wondering what lairseas was representing
dsquared*nz*
May 28, 2006

Pretty sure wolves live in a den as well... Den of wolves is an expression I've heard. I can certainly see where your confusion came in though

That was really hard. Great teaser.
