Trivia Tuesday

I haven’t finished writing about my experiences attending the Steelers-Dolphins game on Sunday, so you’ll just have to wait until tomorrow to read my recap. In the meantime, have you ever heard of the word, ditloid? Apparently, a ditloid is a type of word puzzle in which a phrase or quote must be deduced from the numbers and abbreviated letters in the clue. You learn something new every day, though that generally doesn’t happen by reading my blog. Anyway, your challenge is to name the phrase based on the ditloids below. For example 50 S in the U S of A = 50 states in the United States of America.

1. 12 S of the Z

2. 16 O in a P

3. 13 in a B D

4. 26 L in the A

5. 4 L on a H

6. 2 W on a B

7. 52 C in a D

8. 2 P in a Q

9. 12 I in a F

10. 24 H in a D


As always please leave your answers in the comments section below and do not use the internet for assistance. Good luck!

This quiz is courtesy of the fine folks at Stump Trivia.
