Well I hope you feel much better today!

I'm thinking the first one is Beastie Boys.

I am, Tara, thank you. And I'm with you on the first one. Can't make out the second though... *thinkthinkthink*

The first one is correct. I stole it off a concert t-shirt. The second one isn't as hard as you think.

I could give you the answer, but I think I'll wait.

This has been torturing me for hours now. I've even tried being cunning, looking at the filenames for the pics and trying to recreate the Google Images search World might have done to find those images, in the (vain) hope of second-guessing how his twisted mind works...

I'm stumped, well and truly. I'm even beginning to wonder if the fact that the horseshoe is upside down (which apparently causes all the luck to drain out of the ends) is significant. I'm probably reading too much into something that's probably so simple it's staring me in the face...

(As an aside, the original dimensions of the discount tent pic have the same ratio as the original plans for the pyramids of Giza...)

If it turns out to be a past word verification thingy he once had to type before he could comment here, I'll never speak to him again.

I wouldn't be that cruel. Actually, you'll probably hate me when you find out the answer anyway. Here, as a reward for all of your work I'll give you the second two picures. Luck Tent.

Great, now we're all sitting here waiting to be mad at Worldgineer.

(DAG!)

Well, I want it to be reluctant, but I know it's not. And cloverluctant doesn't actually make sense. Hmm, maybe I should head to the poetry rhyming page I know of... *cackles and rubs hands together*

Oh! I get it. That's an awful pun. I'm sure Matt will gretgret creating this pun.

So - another day's worth of mental torture. I hope you're pleased with yourself, Mr. Gineer.

Again, I'm obviously going connection-crazy. I found out that a shamrock is actually quite a loose definition of a plant, and sometimes wood sorrel is mistaken for four leaved clovers. sorrel luck tent. So, reluctent-ly, I have to admit that I'm scunnered on this one. Just give me the solution or kill me now. Either one would be a blessed relief...

On the plus side, I am learning something new as I bang my head against a metaphorical brick wall in sheer frustration.

Steve is right - I do gretgret this one. I've caused lost yet another day of pain over nothing.

It's reluctant. Or re-luck-tent. Or luck-luck-tent. See? There are two lucks. I re-lucked it. Hence, reluctant. You used it in your last comment even.

Sorry. I really do with it had something to do with some distant connection to the shamrock's etymology.

I hope this answer gives you some . ..

I think you should go and sit in the corner and think about what you've done.

I think he's sufficiently morsemorseful.
