Saturday Word Play- Hardee Har Har Reverse Word Make


In today's Saturday Word Play, I'm attempting a reverse on the old elementary school pasttime, "How many words can you make from the letters in ..." Perhaps you remember being given a word like apocalyptic and given the instructions to make as many words as you can from its letters. You'd find words like lip, cola, clip and so on and, in the end, the person who'd found the most words would win. This time I'm going to tell you the name of a comedian's book as well as words made from the letters of the comedian's name. I won't tell you all the possible words, but I'll give you enough so that all the letters you need will be there. Can you tell me the comedian, as well as three more possible words?

For example, if I gave you

Report: The Book- mire, mike, creme

You would tell me that the comedian is Rick Mercer, and three more words in his name are rim, ere, and rice. (We'll keep all words 3 letters or more.)

Got it?

As always, feel free to do all ten at home but only one answer one in the comment section to allow nine more people to play along.

3. Don't Stand Too Close To A Naked Man- lean, mill, late

4. The Pleasure of My Company- tame, sieve, near

5. Bad Golf My Way- sell, inn, seen

6. My Point... And I Do Have One- green, sled, eel

7. My Booky Wook- balls, sure, drab, land

8. How To Talk Dirty and Influence People- nun, cure, ruby, beer, rule

9. Book of Top Ten Lists and Zesty Lo-Cal Chicken Recipes- tater, meal, vile, dad, need

10. The Greedy Bastard Diary: A Comic Tour of America- dice, rice, lice

The only ones that I had any chance at have all been taken. Darned early risers!

Great to see that you made it home, so sorry we were out of town when you came through, though.
