Hi junki3fashion,

Thank you for posting your little syllacrostic puzzle. That was fun. I was able to get all the answers except "Giraffe's short-necked kin." I almost had him from the remaining 8 syllables---but then, no. Could you please private message me the answer to that one? Thanks!

It's OKAPI. Giraffe's are my favorite animal. They are all over my house.

Hi creamchz3,
Well, I was thinking it was OKAPI, too. But there was no PI on the given syllable list. Assuming that was inadvertent, and we put it on the list, and found the 9 answers, 6 syllables would be left over. I made "luxurious" and "undo" from them. Maybe a couple of clues were inadvertently omitted also. Without any accompanying comments or follow-up, we'll never know. Could have been a school assignment. Frances.

I just realized something. Syllacrostics are supposed to have a saying reading down the first and last letters of the answers. What does this one say?

I also tried to make some sense of the first and last letters, even assuming blanks here & there. But, no, they don't spell out anything, which again, suggests this may have been only part of a syllacrostic. I think we were only given those clues to which junki3fashion didn't know the answers. Or an assignment from a teacher with a few clues from an existing puzzle and some extra syllables thrown in.
