Third Base (Posted on 2003-09-15) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Here are some newspaper headlines:

YOU RUB IT,
SHEEP DUELED WAR STEPS,
AGING BORED TO NUT PRAYED,
FOSSILL WINS A QUIT AND OIL IT

What is the most likely "name" for this newspaper?

A: WARRITIRE B: AT IT SPARED C: TANK CURE

Note: Spaces/commas count in this code, but are nothing in it. Also, treat all words to have one space/comma between the next word. (There is no space before the beginning or after the end of the headlines, or before each possible newspaper name)

Some Thoughts I think Im onto something .... | Comment 6 of 13 |
I think I finally figured out what the title means. Third Base could be a reference to base 3 notation. 26 letters plus a space can be easily represented with 27 3-digit base 3 numbers (000 to 222).
