Last Week's Challenge: Take the name of an aquatic animal, in two words, six letters in the first word and four letters in the second. Remove the first letter of each word, the remaining eight letters in order, will spell a word that might describe an animal that is not aquatic.

Answer: "Harbor Seal = Arboreal"

Winner: Jeff Jacot from Houston, Texas

Next Week's Challenge comes from listener Ed Pegg Jr.: Rearrange the twelve letters of the words "AIR CUSHIONED" to name a person in the media, first and last names.
