This is an obsession of mine. Love puzzles and mind teasers of all kinds but two came to my attention today which I cannot figure out. Perhaps someone with a fresh look can solve them? Anyway, here's an example or two:

"No ways it ways"= "No two ways about it"

13579
------- = "overwhelming odds"
whelming

Now the two problems I could not figure out:

Puzzle 1

Quote:

May
-----
AA


Puzzle 2

Quote:

R
Y
S


Any ideas??

What a puzzle! I think I'm hooked. Getting tired but I've gotten to level 6 so far.

Hope folks will give the two I've listed above a try. Would love the solutions.

Man, that tip on notpron was great! Don't know whether to thank you or be angry with you. It's an obsession. Even my son can't tear himself away from the screen. Hope I live long enough to complete it! Went until 2am last night and have been on the road most of today for the festivities but my mind has been on level 9 all day! I've got a massive headache, too!!

Guess in some sort of demented way, you did help with the problem of the other two puzzles. Notpron consumes me so there's little attention paid to the others so I suppose I should thank you for the "help". So THANKS!
