Brain Game: Corduroy Pillows Make Headlines
You're the editor of a newspaper, and trouble's brewing. The owner's inept nephew,Â Zeke,Â has been hired on to typeset the headlines.Â You like your job, so you wantÂ to take it easy on the boss's kin.Â ZekeÂ has trouble centering the headlines exactly... especially after having a fewÂ drinks with his lunch. To make things as easy as possible for Zeke, you set up a template with three four-letter words:
XXXX XXXX XXXX
And sinceÂ Zeke doesn't know the whole alphabet, you promise him that you'll never use more than four different letters of the alphabet in any headline. (So each word in the headline is an anagram of the other words.)
So you're sorting through the headlines from the upcoming issue, and try to convert them to meet the new requirements. The first one comes to you quickly:Â The story titled FELINE MUSICAL TROUPE PERFORMS would become CATS CAST ACTS.
