(There is no "flavour text" for the puzzle, but I need to post some words for StackExchange to accept my question.)

    $\begingroup$ This was a nice puzzle! A few minor inconsistencies in how it worked, but it was a cute and fun idea. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Deusovi: I concede the inconsistencies. I couldn't find a way to eliminate them, but yeah, I found it cute, so I proceeded anyway. $\endgroup$ Feb 10, 2020 at 8:08

1 Answer 1


Each of these images

clues the sound of the word "tack" [or something similar to it -- the vowel sound can be different], followed by a letter sound.

We have:

- a taxi ("tack-C")
- George Takei ("tack-A")
- Liam Neeson in Taken ("tack-N" -- vowel sound is different here but it's written with an 'a' still)
- a taco ("tack-O", if you heavily Americanise the pronunciation)
- and Weird Al in Tacky ("tack-E").

So the answer is CANOE.
