1 Answer 1

  1. COCKY (cock - y)

  2. JARRING (jar - ring)

  3. HEADSHOT (head - shot)

  4. KEYNOTE (key - note) (?)

  5. ICONIC (credits to @hdsdv for this one, I was looking for a word ending in ICY, or something to do with red eye, blue sea)

  6. BONG (hit a bowl) or PUNCHBOWL (credits to @hdsdv and @GarethMcCaughan for this idea)


Picking the third letter of each word yields CRAYON

  • $\begingroup$ I believe 5 is rot13(VPBAVP) and 6 is rot13(CHAPUOBJY) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Last one looks to me more like rot13(chapuobjy). I wonder whether 4 might be rot13(cbfg-vg abgr), punning on rot13("abgr"). Definitely agree about 2 and 3. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @hdsdv Brilliant, I was not thinking this way. $\endgroup$ Aug 15, 2019 at 15:50
  • $\begingroup$ Actually, on reflection I like Arnaud's answer for 4 better than mine. $\endgroup$
