Long live the vowels (Posted on 2017-04-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Bertrand Russell's famous recipe for longevity:

--OO-E -OU- -A-E--- -I-E--

As you see - only the vowels are left. Hopefully, it's enough to restore the original quotation.

From a strictly grammatical viewpoint and "recognizing that the period is important" (Henderson v. State of Mississippi, Supreme Court of Mississippi, February 8, 1984)*, the last blank position should be designated for the period.

So the solution is:

GROOVE FOUR HATEFUL WIVES .

(Russell's famous recipe in a secret letter to Ludwig Wittgenstein of July 1, 1939: private archive, signature LRW 7-39)**

(* no joke)
