(from NPR and rec.puzzles) Challenge given on October 30, 1994:
This is a two-week challenge:
Take a look at this sentence: "Top opera ran Angela Lansbury." This is an
example of what I call a chain link sentence. The last two letters of
each word are the first two of the next. Here's another example: "The
helicopter Ernest stole leaves escape perilous." The challenge for the
next two weeks is to write your own chain link sentence. Entries will be
judged on sense, syntax, and cleverness. The winner will be announced in
two weeks (November 13, 1994).
If you know the answer to the challenge, send it, along with a daytime
phone number, to ***@npr.org. If you're the winner, you'll get to play
Puzzle on the air with Will. All entries must be received by the end of
business day Thursday, November 10th.
