Throw some anagrams around!In the sentences below, there are 10 jumbled phrases. Each is an anagram of a word or phrase that helps complete the story. Can you decipher all 10?

The kids were playing on the WET SIGNS, Uncle Frank and Jack from next door were playing a game of HOSS HEROES, and it was time for the grill. The THICK TRIO was lighted, and the TOAST PIE had been dusted off. Kristen, their teenager, was stretched out on the EAGLE CUSHION and talking on her CLONE HELP as usual. The RUM LABEL offered some shade, and it was time for the announcement: "NO HBO CONCERT!" This followed by PRESCRIBE MAD HUB and a genial reminder: SHOCK TOE SKI!

Got a few , missed a few. Really fun teaser, would like to see more.

I don't mind a tough teaser, but, it should at least be solvable.

If "TO CHOKE SKIES" = "KISS THE COOK", where did the extra "E" go?
Feb 08, 2011

these kind of puzzles are exactly in my wheelhouse. I agree, where's the extra E? Did you mean SKIS? Word puzzles have to be exact.

Good catch on the extra E. Makes it that much more difficult. Also, "lounge" is misspelled in the answer.

I got a few, but gave up because it was much too long and time consuming. It was a good teaser, but just too long for me, and I became bored trying.

Got all but barbecued shrimp. Now I need some aspirin for a headache.

Good one, I found it IN TEN TIGERS.

Difficult to solve for us Aussies, particularly those who like myself, don't watch any American shows; I managed about half!

What's a 'Chaise Lounge'?

Does serving corn on the cob & ( bbqued shrimp? ), really warrant an announcement? I was thinking it was some sort of celebration announcement.

Sorry, I became bored after a while!
