Anagram Puzzle

Today we have a guest puzzle, supplied by Frank Paul, Author of “The Cryptic Pub Quiz” and Quiz Master at The Mill in Cambridge.

Rephrase each of the following as a three-word sentence in which all three words are anagrams of one another (for example, “rudest duster rusted”):

  1. Reptile in attendance expresses remorse
  2. Nimblest members of the clergy don’t give up
  3. Ducks severely criticize an inventor
  4. Keeps more unpleasant parts of eyeballs
  5. An operatic heroine adds toppings to Mexican food
  6. Bemoan cloak of the mind
  7. Laid waste to most resistant strands of fibre
  8. Business which sells goods at a lowered price initiates instances of prices being lowered

As usual you can post the answers as a comment on this website, reply to the post on Facebook , or retweet or reply on Twitter  @quizmastershop.

We suspect not many people will get all eight correct, but prove us wrong :-) Answers on Monday
