Solution for 10.15.07

NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday Puzzle for October 15, 2007:

Name a country in 11 letters that has an R in its name. Change the R to a K. Rearrange all the letters to name three makes of automobiles.

What is the country, and what are the autos?

Knowing Will, the answers are probably anything but a coincidence. The country in question is Saudi Arabia, the worlds leading producer of oil. The cars: Audi, Saab, and Kia.

Pet Peeve # 18:  Audi does not rhyme with gaudy.  It rhymes with rowdy.
