Q224: Crazy letters this time

#1 · Posted: 17 May 2007 21:21 · Edited by: tuhatkauno
This Q is like Eurovision winner -06 Lordi, it looks worse than it actually is.

Here are letters in alphabetical order


Use all the letters, every letter only one time, and find three things.

"Things" appear in albums and are Tintin-related (not just some car, cat, cow). So give the things and albums with pagenumbers. You can give little explanation as well. Then it would be easy to check and estimate your answers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- -----

To be sure that you have understand, I'll give an example:

AACCCORTW -> car, cow, cat

All the letters are used only once, and three things are found. Please ask, if something is unclear.

Turskatii! Here goes nothing!


SSS = Society of Sober Sailors, p. 64, Crab with Claws

SS = s.s. as in s.s. Ramona, Red Sea Sharks p. 120

IACG = International Austronautical ConGress, Flight 714 p. 69

Sorry, I have the American version of the books so my pagenumbers are probably different from yall's.

I like these questions. Mind you, I also liked Lordi, but there you go!

How about...
Arabex. Black Gold pg37 3-in-1. Sheik Ben Kalish Ezabs preferred petroleum company.
International Settlement. Blue Lotus pg7.
Gangsters Syndicate of Chicago.
Tintin in America pg11.
Society of Sober Sailors. Shooting Star pg14.

How many times does this happen. Ha ha ha. We must have been typing at the same time, waveofplague!

Thanks for the answers

First, Wavy, your answer made me very happy and you should earn a happy point. But I'm afraid if there exists such a point. That ConGress is the weak link and I cannot accept your answer this time.

Ranko, I quess you have already noticed that I asked three things and you gave four. Otherwise you did a good job.

I won't comment any more. I'll wait your answers, the question is still unanswered.

Yep, you certainly did say three! Maybe I'll read the questions a bit more closely myself in the future ;-)

Okay. Here goes...

I.S.A. International Sigillographical Association (Ottokers Sceptre page 2)

S.S.S. Society of Sober Sailors (Shooting Star page 14)

G.S.C. Gangsters Syndicate of Chicago. (Tintin in America page 11)

Time for another drink... bugger the sauna and spa this time. :)

Hi all the Bruces and Sheilas in Australia.

This Bruce really knows what to do, well done Toydreamer! A point and the turn to Dreamy again! Ranko, it was so close, and Wavy that ConGress was the cutest answer heard here.

Now I'll heat up a sauna to 220 F, it is a mild and proper temperature for good bathing and then I'll need a damn good thrashing with birch branches.

Morning Bruce.

I slid in for the steal on the back of answers from Ranko and Plague... thanks fellas.

Got to zip to work, but will return shortly with a cunning question.
