    I got two wrong (mixed up a metaphor and a simile; besides, I don't know what a hyphen is if it isn't an apostroph)

    I missed one since I didn't know what 'avarice' meant.

    Accommodate this! :grumpy: 1 wrong - #10. When will the people rise up and switch to phonetic spelling? :cry: C'mon, people - we have the power!

    Yeah, but you would have got simile wrong too if it hadn't been for all the hints here. Admit it. Come on, admit it.

    Three wrong.

    Yeah, I lost a point that way, too.

    Two wrong. Acomadation, and the one about the long lost brother. (Hey, I think that deserves an exclamation point, but apparently declaring that you've found your long lost brother is on a par with flatly stating "these eggs needs more salt.")

    I was disappointed they didn't have the nuclear/nucular one.

    And pattylou, technically you got four wrong-- but such technicalities never get past the grammer Nazi. :devil:

    Actually, I think russ got the right answer. No wonder everyone's missed at least one so far!

    2 wrong. I had to make some educated guesses in the beginning and got one wrong. And I made a stupid mistake in the end. I`m still pleased though :smile:
