The Foxer

Clearing up the defoxing annexe after last week's birthday celebrations (thanks for playing, everyone!) took the best part of a day. While I dealt with the consequences of using our extensive O gauge model of a WWI trench railway network as a vol-au-vent distribution system, Roman painstakingly removed party popper streamers from the rigging of the 1:35 Preussen replica over the fireplace, and Moira went to work on the red wine stains on our recently reupholstered (sigh) Splittertarn sofas. Uncle George's late arrival meant he was the one who found himself out in the yard winkling dried vomit from Wendy the Weasel's nooks and crannies with a pressure washer and toothbrush.

Below is a list of ’25 Things You Might Find In A Kitchen’ (‘Things’ and ‘Might’ are used here in their broadest possible senses). For purposes of obfuscation, the ‘things’ have been stripped of vowels and had spaces repositioned. For example, if ‘rolling pin’ was present, it might appear as…

RLLN GPN

The last five entries in the list – those marked with asterisks – are especially fiendish. Not only are they vowel-less, they have also been anagrammed.
