Spelling police! Sir, I am giving you a ticket for $120 for spelling both "reach" and "arrest" wrong. The ticket also includes improper pronoun usage: utilizing "his self" instead of "himself," then later using "me" which does not correspond correctly. Another offence, and you will go to Spelling and Grammar School!  :P

Umm..Lollotte you spelled it "offence" not "offense", and your Spelling Police!

Yeah! Bails Shadowfax with 1,000,967,352 Swiss Gergenshnikles. (GURG-IN-SHNICK-ELZ)

Well, I know you have withdrawn the bail but I could use the money anyway in the fight for good grammar!

and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day.
But warriors know it in their marrow when they die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have fought at all.

Oh come on, tis an easy one!  :)

(I assume you have worked it out right...)


Opening it up would make it far too easy!

It is also how we normally present it, extra confusion for drunken barcrawlers!

Sorry for double posting but having looked at what you are trying to show me, well, the puzzle actually does not work like that...

There are no missing letters, although the spelling is altered to how you SAY the words as opposed to how you read them...

Sorry, it is a different type of puzzle, apologies for not making it clear!

1st. I haven't said you should mix all words together, only one word at a time.
2nd. Missing letters? it's mixing the letters
3rd. I will try to solfe your puzzle
(edit: some day when I feel like it.)

Oops, I think we are misunderstunding each other again!

I was basically commenting on MY puzzle rules, I understand yours perfectly clearly!  :)

Anyway, you know the puzzle is a different concept now and that is what matters!  :)

"Your" is possesive. "You're" would be the correct form of the word. Also, you need a connector between "you're" and "Spelling Police." I would suggest using "the."  :P

It's like I'm training people to be just as annoying as I am about grammar...

I'm so happy... ^^

Hehe, bad grammar is annoying in general! Is it a big problem where you lot hail from? I am not annoyed by bad grammar simply because I live so near London and in SE England, bad grammar is in the blood of everyone! You would be driven mad otherwise!

The latest trend I have heard, several times, are people saying "Can I LEND a pencil" when it should be "Can I BORROW a pencil"...Pilchards the lot of them!)

That's like the difference between "teach" and "learn." It seems like a stupid mistake to say, "I will LEARN you how to talk well."  :P

Hmm, due to your impeccable grammar and highly skilled vocabulary, I declare you to be head of the spelling police!
Can I still arrest people for bad spelling? XD

Umm..Lollotte you spelled it "offence" not "offense", and your Spelling Police!
You do realise there are two ways of spelling offence? :P

I know "can" is considered acceptable these days, but I still say it's "may". Strictly speaking, you CAN do anything, the question being only if you MAY.
