1 Comment

This Wordy Wednesday I thought I would keep things light challenge your minds while having a good giggle. If you had a childhood like mine you probably remember the game ‘Mad Gab‘ it was one of our family favorites, along with Scrabble and Monopoly, so this Wordy Wednesday’s Edition is a ‘Mad Gab’ Challenge.

Below are a series of saying that are not what they appear. The puzzles below contain a series of unrelated words. When you read them aloud they sound like familiar names, places, phrases, etc.. (For example: Plea Sleeve Amass Itch = Please Leave a Message) See how many you can figure out and post your responses in the comments section below. (I will post the answers at a later date.) This game can be a lot of fun and is a great way to get your mind in gear while having a good laugh. It is best played in groups, so gather up some family or friends and read these phrases aloud for a good group laugh and a ton of fun.

So without further delay; Get Mad…and Start Gabbing…
