Broke Yokel Bikies

He LIKED the CHEEK of the BROKE YOKEL BIKIE doing the NAKED POLKA

No, I haven’t been smoking anything this morning. The list this week will be on 5 letter words including a K (but not an S) that also have another anagram.

In some cases both the words are well known and you might spot either word.

FAKER FREAK

WAKER WREAK

But think how often you have played the first word of the following combinations when the other word might have been able to be placed for a bigger score.

MAKER KERMA A term in physics related to kinetic energy

LEAKY KAYLE A ninepin

WAKEN KNAWE A cornfield weed of the chickweed family

WOKEN KNOWE A small, rounded hillock

That brings us back to the weird opening statement. Each of the capitalised words has an anagram. See how many of those anagrams you can get. There is one word that everybody will be capable of getting. You may not know the others, but you are allowed to try your best guess. The words will all be part of today’s list, but I will put them right at the bottom so that you can have a go at the quiz.
