OK. I keep beeing intrigued by this quiz.
Mabbogtebby's nr. 4. and 5.
I got some good help for this one and I don't know if it is completely right.
4. I would say: b is d turned backwards (but maybe MadDog was in his cups here?)Is it : b is drunken d?
5. : or should that be 'd' is 'b' backwards.

BTW I'm looking for the Gallant Ted wrap up paper everywhere , but all I can get is paper with the kidnapped and commercialized Pooh-Pooh.

Mabbog is allus reversing his b's and d's. Comes from not minding his q's and p's.

Faldage, I admire you for your clean, compact answers, but q's and p's
are like MDT 's b's and d's to me.

I rarely understand a thing that the Bear says, so you're not alone, Bran.

Having worked with children with dyslexia, I have a different insight into the b/d p/q business. Perhaps the expression "mind your p's and q's" had something to do with typesetting, and being wary of easily comfused letters.

Oh qooq! A qox uqon it.

Mabbogtebby! I do perfectly well understand what you say and you always greatly amuse me. Honest.
I just don't understand all these WIKIPEDIAPHILES here that don't want to say "mind your pints and quarters" , which is what I perfectly understand beeing of general good breeding myself.
I can't understand how a cute Christmas doggy that stole Santa's hood can give such a cold link for an answer in stead of 4
words.
And I appreciate all the trouble you took to make those quizzy lines
+ the effort to mix up the b's and the d's.
Here's to you and your Bear friends. A Free round!

(It's that all these Wikipedestrians have gotten so lazy they can't solve all of your riddles and don't want to say so.)

Yeh, yeh: Gwenny Gwenny , four farthings in an old penny.
Plus a typing error to make this all the more easy, hm?
7 drunken nights if so....???
But of course the most interesting of all = NR. 24

I got one right in all! A MadDog's one , so , classified now among the bony fido total genusses of this earth.
I already knew that! Modesty is my middle name. X X X
