If plurals are allowed, how many words of four or more letters (including
one of nine letters) can you make from M-I-R-I-C-K-L-E-S?
NB. MIMIC would not be allowed because only one M is available; ICIER, on
the other hand, would, because the letter I appears twice in MIRICKLES.

A very subtle hint; congratulations! (Though I would have written the first lines "I know this really sounds absurd/And nothing stranger have I heard") (Sorry, I'm in a nitpicking mood!!)
