1 Answer 1


Let's replace the right sides with synonyms that match the left side when one letter is replaced by the One Ring - er, I mean an 'O':

Halo is 0.5 - halo is halF.
Soy is cunning - soy is sLy.
Pot is a dab - pot is pAt.
Rio is free - rio is riD.
Oil is 0 - oil is Nil.
Lost is an ultimate - lost is lAst.
Bio is substantial - bio is biG.

The letters replaced by O are FLADNAG... Which, backwards, reads GANDALF! A great character indeed.
