Expressional phrases are teasers whereby the answer is a common phrase which you can derive from a statement or combination of statements given.

Eg "I'm taking that girl Andrea Walk out tonight to that 'tricky part' of town"

would solve to

"Take a walk on the wild side" - or broken down further: "Take A(ndrea) Walk on the wild (wiled - Trickery; cunning) side (of town)."

Therefore what would the following solve to:

"Yes Ed, it is for Grant"

Thanks Sassy though I am sorry to say this new idea kind of died before it began. It seems people weren't that keen on this by the ratings so I decided not to take it any further. It can be quite a tricky one to solve I guess and a bit stretchy so I can understand that.

Nice Teaser! Jeez, dont worry so much on the ratings. I enjoyed it, and liked it. If it just makes one person happy or if just one person enjoyed it, then it was worth it.
