(Your Uncle is going to need a little help on this one! I tried HIS, HAT, and HOR for the first 3 letters, but can’t come up with anything for the remaining 7. So, the first 3 are probably sumpin’ else? JT? Anybody?) — YUR

(Many thanks to Ryan and everybody who submitted a comment/answer on this! I was spinning my wheels and getting nowhere on it. Some days – especially when I’m tired – I’m too literal for my own good. Nice going, folks!) — YUR

You were right starting with “hat”

The answer is “HAT-ROCIOUS” (play on atrocious)

I’m trying to make a play for/using citrus and atrocious, but can’t quite make it fall into place/??

HAT-ROCIOUS

The answer is

“Hat-rocious

I GOT THE ANSWER….. HAT-ROCIOUS!!! IT TOOK A LONG TIME BUT I FIGURED IT OUT.

I ALWAYS USE THIS WEBBSITE FOR A LITTLE HELP WHEN I CANT FIGURE OUT A JUMBLE WORD. GLAD I CAN FINALLY HELP OUT =)

How about “HIS-TOURACO”

I think it’s a made up word: hat-rocious… a combination of hat and atrocious.

UNCLE,

Best I can come up with is HAT-TROCIOUS. A tough one today.

Wow! What a response! 16 Comments came in, with most of them being the consensus of: HAT-ROCIOUS. Ryan was THE first to *ring in* with (what I’ll accept as) the correct answer! Nice going, people!

I stuck in an extra “T” by mistake. I had HAT-ROCIOUS. JUST BIG FINGERS!!!

As good a punmeister as I am I still couldn’t stretch my mind enough to guess this answer.

I got hat and that was it.

hat-curioso

That lends an interesting Southern European flare to things!
