    The following phrases are the jumbled-up names of fairly well-known personalities (living or dead). Each phrase itself gives a little clue about the person. Ignoring punctuation marks and other non-alphabetic characters, figure out who the people are. All names include first and last names (and no middle names).

    Example : Mr. mojo risin' = Jim Morrison (songwriter/singer for the 60s rock group, The Doors) :rolleyes:

    RULE :

    # Only ONE answer per person (ONE answer total, NOT per question) until I announce a free-for-all.


    Please read that rule again . . . .Thanks



    Okay ! Here they come... :bugeye:


    1. crawl had risen

    2. simile peak ala shrew

    3. an iconic dame - 'A'

    4. fund armed dolls

    5. on any screen

    6. mind = drug + fuse

    7. he is in 'em arts

    8. he d' mad suni ass



    That's the lot...and please don't use online anagram tools :yuck: - that's cheating !! :devil:

    Nice going folks !

    Sorry Galileo, I don't know Mister Haines, either, but good try. In all fairness, that one's a little difficult.

    2, 4, 6, and 8 are done. Find the odd ones out ! :smile: Hmmm...I didn't intend this but the most of the odds are harder than the evens - at least, the people are not as famous.

    jcsd, Galileo, humanino, recon and check : check back soon, I may yet announce a f-f-a if the others get nowhere.

    Please don't kick me out the forum

    1 crawl had risen = weird Carl Nash, or again : has CERN Dr. Wali ?Dr Hi anal screw
    :redface: :blushing: :shy: :redface: :blushing:
    I am really ashamed. I could not resist.

    EDIT : this is less bad... everything is still here though. Sorry, I really love playwords, and bad jokes. Took me a while to figure out the others though. My mind must be sick.

    Okay, this seems to have hit a cul-de-sac, so I'm calling it a free-for-all, NOW !

    BobG, jcsd, Galileo, humanino, recon and check are all back in. Personograms 3,5, and 7 still remain.

    Hard luck, jcsd...that came close though, and few people know Madonna's last name.

    HINT : Sportsperson. Also, I've seen an alternate (one letter different) spelling of the name, but I believe this is the right one.
