[SOLVED: FRENCH CUT] [1] Margirt Trigrams

edited 2013-12-07 15:53:16 in Puzzlers Chat

One thing I notice right off the bat. The two words in the title are anagrams of each other.

    Wait, actually the title's a palindrome. Mostly

  • MADAME, NOT ONE MAN IS SELFLESS; I NAME NOT ONE MADAM.  The trigram FLE is backwards (should be ELF).  This is probably what's important.

    ON A CLOVER, IF ALIVE, ERUPTS A VAST, PURE EVIL; A FIRE VOLCANO. RUP should be PUR.


    SOME MEN INTERPRET NINE MEMOS. ERP should be PRE.


    SATAN, OSCILLATE MY METALLIC SONATAS. NOS should be SON.

    CIGAR? TOSS IT IN A CAN. IT IS SO TRAGIC. CAN should be NAC.


    GO HANG A SALAMI, I'M A LASAGNA HOG. HOG shoulg be GOH.


    NO, MEL GIBSON IS A CASINO'S BIG LEMON. CAS should be SAC.


    DEPARDIEU, GO RAZZ A ROGUE I DRAPED. UEI should be IEU.


    DESSERTS I DESIRE NOT, SO LONG NO LOST ONE RISE DISTRESSED. TSO should be OST

  • Can we make a palindrome from the reversed trigrams? (I'm assuming we'll have to use both reversed and original)

  • forwards we have: FLE RUP ERP NOS CAN HOG CAS UEI TSO


    reversed we have ELF PUR PRE SON NAC GOH SAC IEU OST

  • FLE


    RUP


    ERP


    NOS


    CAN


    HOG


    CAS


    UEI


    TSO


     


    First letters of the forward trigrams spell FRENCH CUT. That appears to be the answer.
