On-air challenge: Every answer is a familiar two-word phrase or name in which the first word starts with the letters P-I and the second word starts with C. For example, given “One of 27 compositions by Mozart” you would say “(Pi)ano (C)oncerto.”

Last week’s challenge: Think of two familiar three-word sayings in which all three words are the same length. The middle word in both sayings is the same. In each saying, the first and last words rhyme with each other. What two sayings are these?

Answer: Haste makes waste; might makes right

Winner: Stephen Leahy of Marshfield, Mass.

Next week’s challenge from Tyler Hinman: Take an eight-letter word for something used in water. Phonetically remove a word for something else used in water. Squish what is left together. The result, phonetically, will be a verb describing what water does. What words are these?
