Gretchen just returned from the beach, and told her brother Henry that she found three interesting types of shells. He asked what they were, and she answered with these rebuses:

LL
LL
AA
CC
SS


1. Nice Naughty Nice Naughty
2. Naughty Nice Naughty Nice
*3. Nice Nice Nice Nice


After thinking for a while, Henry says, "I get the first two types of shells, but didn't you say you found three?"

"Oops! I almost forgot!" replies Gretchen, as she hits her brother on the head.

"Now I know them all!" he laughs.


Answer

The first type were scallops (SCALL-ups). The second was nautilus (Naughty-less). And the last was conch (conk!).
