Was this feegled from Rhianna's Twitter account? ;)

Hmm, well ...

#1. Commander Samuel Vimes (Not sure what the remaining letters - 'Sile uos' - mean)

#2. I thought this could be Detritus, but there's only one 't'. Sigh.

#3. This looks like "Angua von Uberwald", but I have 'Ipt Canr' left over, and I'm not sure where those go. "Captrin"? ;) I think someone substituted an 'r' for an 'a' to make this harder! :p

#4 is Seargant Frederick Colon (although there's only one 'a' - is that 'Sergant'? Or 'Sargent'? Well, I know there's Malcolm Sargent, but 'Sargent' is not a military rank! Tsk.)

#5. That looks like Nobby Nobbs, but not enough 'b's. ;) Also, there's only one 'c' - so it can't be "Cecil", which is Nobby's real name.

It also can't be Carrot - there are two 's's in his surname, Ironfoundersson.

These are difficult. But I'm not much into anagrams, so they would be difficult for me. *sigh* Oh well ...

Careless work, Rath. You misspelled "sergeant" and mistook several other letters.

1. Commander Sir Samuel Vimes

3. Captain Angua von Uberwald
4. Sergeant Fred Colon
5. Corporal Nobby Nobbs
6. Sergeant Detritus

Whoops - my bad about "sergeant". *blush* All I can say there is that I had a raging headache when I tried to do these.

But, but ... hold on: #3 can't be "Captain Angua von Uberwald". The clue is "Candelabra Avow A Gnu Input", and there's no "i" for the word "captain". :(

Anagrams aren't my "thing", either, but I spotted that, at least. :)

Um... "Input" begins with an i.
Argh, alas, alack, alarums, excursions (to the sea-side of Quirm, even)! :cry: ;)

Clearly anagrams are not my thing, and I definitely should not have been staring at the computer screen at 11pm, after a hard day of work, and trying to unscramble words into names.

But - wait a moment! :oops: By Om, I think I've got some ...

9. A Priestliness Mop Ace == A. E. Pessimal, Inspector

10. A Wheat Murder == Wee Mad Arthur

Huzzah! ;)

...and guess what - I thought up some more anagrams for you to figure out! ;) As before, these are all from the Ankh-Morpork Watch.

1. Damn Feet, Ned Bit Colyn

2. Isn't Able; Cor, Go!

3. Spot A Whale, Can't Sob!

4. Crop Bag, Wiry Grue Loss

Enjoy! :) (Or tear your hair out, whichever comes first...!) :devil:

Ah, well - no more guesses! Here we go:

1. Damn Feet, Ned Bit Colyn is ... drumroll ... Constable Fiddyment! ;)

Who's he, you ask? He's a human constable in the Watch, and appears in "The Truth". I can't say more or I'd spoil it, but he plays a pivotal role! :)
