Charade Cubes


Charades are one of the oldest, simplest, and most amusing forms of wordplay. Charades are simply dissections of a word into two or more words, preferably unrelated to the original. Our greatest amusement derives from surprise at the buried images; for example, leg ally from legally, rap a city from rapacity, stag nation from stagnation, and either no table or not able from notable.
