Jun 04, 2005

Oh, I get it! (It took me like 5 minutes to figure it out.)
iluvkip, at the top of the teaser it says What Are The Elusive Characters? Missing Two Letters Or Numbers? When you take the first letter of each word, you get WATEC; MTLON.

Jun 06, 2005

flipflopchica--I didn't get it either until I read brianz's comment. I don't know if I can explain it better than him, though I'll try to help you. In the sentences: "What Are The Elusive Characters? Missing Two Letters Or Numbers?" look at the first letters of each word. (The ones I capitalized.) Hope it helps!
iluvkip*
Jun 06, 2005

OHHHH!!! I get it! thank you!
flipflopchica**
Jun 06, 2005

I get what you're saying i think.So the answer is m, t because they're the first two letter of the next two words?
flipflopchica**
Jun 06, 2005

well c, t i mean?
flipflopchica**
Jun 06, 2005

sorry i just don't get it...what words start with c and t?

*sigh* i was thinking too literally (which is normally required in trick categories).
i decided that the "missing letters" were question marks (because question marks were left in their place, rather than spaces)
answer wasn't too bad i suppose

Jun 09, 2005

The fact that you used the word "elusive", and that you mentioned numbers or letters should have told me the answer. Good one.
