Here's a tough puzzle. See if you can figure out the answer.

Unscramble the following phrase and, using all the letters, make a ten-letter word that a four-year old child would recognize. Very possibly you have never had occasion to write the word, but it's likely that you've spoken it several times:

ROAST MULES

Good luck with this one! If you need a hint, just ask!

Well its not RASTUS MOLE but it could be either SOULMASTER or SOMERSAULT

Try these three phrases for size

"A HORSES TOY" and "ANAL VICTORY" feats are both skillfully presented here in the Café as part of the "RURAL PEANUTS"

Yes, the answer is SOMERSAULT (remember doing those as a kid?)

... and an anagram of ROAST MULE is EMULATORS.
There are 10 kinds of people: those who understand binary numbers, and those who don't.

Montgomery found the alchemists lair deep in the forest. Peeking through the tiny windows he saw nobody was home so he crept in and ransacked the room seeking a elixir which he had heard was hidden somehere inside. After a few minutes he discovered an old dusty bottle with a darkened label containing the cryptic letters
____________________
____________________

E v i t a ____ X a l s n i

A t n o c ___ S i h t g n

____ I n ___ R a w ___
____________________

and quaffed its entire contents. Then he sat down in the wizards chair and began trying to decipher the message.

An hour passed by and he was no nearer decoding the letters when he suddenly jumped up and ran outside shouting "I am undone.."

What had Montgomery learned to his cost?

any chance he was reading the label though the bottle?

why are there capital letters on the label in odd places?

could that top line end in the word "laxitive" and so motivate his finding a more apporpriate chair ... ? Which would make the first line (reversed) read:

"warning..."

still unsure about the odd spaces and mixedcase letters.

Maybe it was a south park brand Smile

Read it backwards.
