Flipping the M

    You can change a ROMAN into a ROWAN tree by flipping the M over to change it into a W.

    What famous inventor is made worse by this process?

    It's speculated that the inventor described above was a fan of Beethoven, which was why the letter V translates to what sounds like the opening tones of Beethoven's Fifth(V) Symphony.

    Also Warconi sounds pretty bad!
