What is the word and what are the connections?


1 Answer 1


I think the word is:


The connections are:

  1. Hoodie – Hood + IE, Internet Explorer, that is

  2. Neighbourhood – Flanders is the Simpsons' neighbour.

  3. Hood Rats

  4. Boyz n the Hood

  5. Hoodwink – ;)

  6. Knighthood

  7. Little Red Riding Hood

  8. Hood ornament – on a car's radiator ✽

  9. Robin Hood – the figure is of Batman's sidekick Robin

As for the title:

A hood (a gangster or rough person) might be a toughie.

✽ Thanks to the many helpful commenters who pointed me into the right direction on the connection to the hanging Harry Potter Christmas-tree decoration (8).

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe the 4th connection is the movie title "Boyz n the Hood" $\endgroup$ Commented May 25, 2017 at 10:43
  • $\begingroup$ @SherlockHolmes: Thanks. I think I've got them now, although I'm not too sure about the HP one. Or is it that the Hogwarts uniforms have hoods? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @MOehm for 8 if it's unrelated to Harry Potter, it's an ornament kind of on a Christmas tree and it's a Lego. If that helps at all :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Ornament has to be it - hood ornament, like on the front of a car. $\endgroup$
