    $\begingroup$ this was a good one! I also like how you shortened 'inside' to 'in'. :) $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 12, 2017 at 8:19
  • $\begingroup$ @wildBillMunson thanks for the nice puzzle idea. Might have to consider using slang words and expression or people names etc. Using tools online makes it too easy to solve with normal words I'm afraid. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 12, 2017 at 8:38
  • $\begingroup$ Yes that's true. Online tools don't usually include proper nouns. Excellent idea! $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 12, 2017 at 8:41
