Can you name the two words which have been 'sifted' together?
Enter a word pair in the box below
Correctly named word pairs will show up below
Answers do not have to be guessed in order
Note there is no anagramming here, just two words which have been blended nicely together to make a wonderful new word. Can you carefully dissect them and extract the two word phrase?
Example: "Elvis Presley" could be sifted into "Eprelvsliesy". The letters are in the proper order, just intermingled.

Such an easy concept yet such a difficult quiz. Bravo!

Good quiz, although it's spelt "Gaiman"

Funny how some answers jump out right away and others it doesn't matter how long you stare at it, it's just a jumble of letters. Terrifically executed, Chewy.

Are you telling me there's not a single "Person Mary" anywhere on television? Bah.

Wow, great quiz. Would love to see more of these.

@googlebird: that one took way too long for me to figure out.

For some reason I could not get from "spelial reactivity" to the correct answer...

Excellent quiz, though I was left wondering what Holiday Martin Luther (as opposed to Martin Luther King) is associated with. Would somebody please enlighten me?

It's amazing how I can stare at a jumble for a long time and not figure out the answer no matter how hard I try, but I'll just immediately see the answer when I glance at it again in the corner of my eye while working on a different one.

My bad: unique QUIZ... It's bed time... Oh the joys of late night 'sporcling'

I think the Alfamomosuts were characters in a Dr. Seuss book. And if they weren't, they should have been.

Great idea for a quiz.

This was really hard, way harder than I expected. I'm terrible with anagrams, but I thought maybe this would be easier because the letters were in order. No such luck.
