How good are you with one letter cryptic sentences?

Asked by ucme (46208points) July 3rd, 2010

Let me explain. What is the longest sentence you can make whilst only using one letter.For instance, o k i c u r a q t. You get my meaning? Silly I know but worth a try, may have potential, you never know.

PS. I cheated up there. My dad used to say that to us when we were kids. It was a little shocking to realize what “L” meant! My folks never cussed around us!

@partyparty They actually inspired this question.Oldie but a goodie.

CDB and MNX both seem to be 70s products. Writing using synonyms was played with beginning in the 30s with this offering from and English and Linguistics professor H. L. Chase: Ladle Rat Rotten Hut [and other Furry Tells]

@ucme Yes I think they were a superb double act. I can still chuckle when I think about them. I also loved the hardware shop sketch ‘fork handles’ (four candles) LOLL :-)))))))

ucme's avatar

@partyparty A classic, also when they dressed up for the funny songs at the end of the show. The worm that turned, a tale of female domination, another good un.

partyparty's avatar

@ucme LOLL yes they were are so natural comical – and talented of course. I think we must have a similar sense of humour!!

K guys! Sorry…I missed this. I didn’t get it sent to my Dutchess_III account. Which I can’t remember the password to.
It means ,“Abe, see the puppies?” “Hell, them are no puppies!” “Oh yes them are! See ‘em peein’?” :)

anartist's avatar

@Val123 aka @Dutchess_III “AB [Abie, not Abe] C D PPs[plural for s sound]?“L, M RN [aren’t, not are not] PPs[plural for s sound]” “O S, M R” last part “C M PN”

and I never looked up once —ain’t I good?

AB C D PPs?
L, M RN PPs.
O S, M R!
C M PN?

@anartist not a love song… my teacher used to write it on our books after we had written a peice of good work… To wise you are, too wise you be, I see you are to wise for me!

anartist's avatar

@sakura excellent! Thank you for sharing that. I love Fluther.
btw did your teacher explain it orassume you were wise enough to figure it out yourself?

sakura's avatar

we had to figure it out, but she did give us a few hints, I was only 8/9 at the time! There was a question a bit like this not so long back on fluther, there are more cryptics on there!
