    $\begingroup$ I have an answer but as a noob I don't know how to post the "hover-reveal" format. $\endgroup$ – Weather Vane Aug 19 '18 at 19:25
  • $\begingroup$ Start the line with ">!" to do a spoiler $\endgroup$ – AlexanderJ93 Aug 19 '18 at 19:26
  • $\begingroup$ @AlexanderJ93 sorry that doesn't work, but it was an easy question. $\endgroup$ – Weather Vane Aug 19 '18 at 19:27
  • $\begingroup$ @WeatherVane: I dunno. I've never answered a puzzle myself. Sorry. $\endgroup$ – Wordster Aug 19 '18 at 19:29

I think it is

consonance/consonant (con(vict) + son + ant)

  • $\begingroup$ It sure is! I have to wait a few minutes to check your answer, tho. $\endgroup$ – Wordster Aug 19 '18 at 19:28

    $\begingroup$ (Spoiler markup is notoriously tricky. It's a bit like blockquote markup, but the >! must be repeated at the beginning of every line and there may be no blank lines in between.. The "real" markup, that is the line breaks, must then either be done with two or more spaces at the end of lines or with HTML markup, <br />. Often, formatting an answer is tricker than finding it. :(.) $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Aug 19 '18 at 19:33

    $\begingroup$ @MOehm thanks for the edit and the tip. I had a blank line in between. Usually I experiment with format in an old post that no-one will be looking at. Is there a "hidden quote" format icon to click? It seems obvious that there should be. $\endgroup$ – Weather Vane Aug 19 '18 at 19:34

Maybe a stretch but

Prison Sentence


Prison + Son + Ants
