Messing with letters… Uknocked…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s colours are: ropy russet, voluptuous violet, kinky khaki, pickled pink, moping mauve and yacht yellow.

Here is a simple, but annoying puzzle involving the letter ‘U’.
Yes, it does look like a poem doesn’t it? But no, it isn’t one.
I call this the ‘Blocksmith Puzzle’ because its origin is in a keyboard error I once made typing the word ‘locksmith’.
It is a nice word, blocksmith…

Some of the letter ‘U’s have been deliberately loosened from this page; please tip all these words into a small bag, give it a good shake, and then tip them out to see if order can spontaneously arise from chaos.

  1. Blimey, Prof. Mouldie would tickle his hat at these. Please don’t let him know I said this, otherwise we’ll all be getting stuff like this for homework! 😀

      “Tickle his hat” I have no idea what that means…
      I even Googled it, but no… I expect Professor Mouldie will know, I’ll give him a call…

      • I have no idea where it came from – in my minds eye there suddenly appeared a bowler hat with a feather in it, as I read your post. Feather – hat – tickle. I think the policemen are warping my thought processing……! 😉

        Yes, I did think that you might be quoting Flann O’Brien, and was racking my brain to recall the phrase in the book, but all I could recall were bicycles and American pocket watches…
