The Foxer

Warm-up foxer (What am I?)

I was born in Somerset during the reign of Queen Victoria. I’m mentioned in a Beatles song. I did my bit during WW1 and WW2. I’ve starred in several films. I was invented by a Geordie. I play an important role in the summer Olympics. I’m in the Guinness Book of Records. In my original form I had something in common with gunpowder and Nivea skin cream.

Below is a list of ‘30 Things That You Might Find in an Artist’s or Sculptor’s Studio’ (‘things’ is used here in its broadest possible sense). Entries have been stripped of vowels and had any inter-word spaces repositioned. For example, if ‘Pablo Picasso’ was present, he might appear as…

PBLPC SS

Palette would be…

PLTT

The five entries marked with asterisks are especially fiendish. Not only are they vowel-less, they have also been anagrammed.
