Where is the Lord’s, Ted?



Eve sins

An umber

Is thin

Rose shape

The answer is ______ (Fill in the blank with a number spelled out )

Explain your answer.


1 Answer 1


My answer is:



A dry plow = wordplay (a tag) (1)
Sword = words (2)
Where is the Lord’s, Ted? = the words listed here (3)
No = on (in the title) (4)
Silted = listed (5)
Eve sins = is seven (but only if the answer is seven)
An umber = a number (6)
Is thin = in this (7)
Rose shape - contains "phrases", but that leaves "oe".

So I have seven anagrams excluding "Eve sins" but:
If I put "The answer is seven", I have an eighth.
And if I put "The answer is eight", I only have seven. Hmm...

So I guess I'll have to say:
The answer is one more than six
