"How the hell did you get those from that so-called clue"?

It was hard at first, I didn't know if it was music or dance or bones in the body.

I got a couple of the easy anagrams, ie not many letters, and decided it was

parts of the huming body.

Those were the lines along which I was thinking, as well as cartoons. Talk about cryptic!!

Move from square to touching square to find the longest possible word. What is it?

xxxx     IS   A    xxxxxxx'S    xxVxxIxx     xxxx?
xxISxxx  


I made the following assumptions ;-

The third word has an apostrophe, so is the word ‘possessive’?, so K is probably an S.

L is probably A.

I thought the fourth word had an ING ending, but when I substitute the letters it is nonsense.

Hope I'm on the right lines, there is precious little to go on!!!!!!! LOL confused  Laughing

I shall continue.

Is the first word a question?
Assume it is WHAT.

Then   A = W     N = H       E = T

We have:-

WHAT    IS   A    Txxxxxx'S    xAVxxITx    xxxxx?
TWISTxx

Assume the last word is TWISTER.

Then    M = E    O = R

We have :-

WHAT    IS    A     TxRxxxx'S      xAVxxITx      xAxxE?
TWISTER

I Have this horrible feeling that the fifth word is FAVOURITE, but spelled the American way of FAVORITE.

Then,    P = F    J = O

We have :-

WHAT      IS     A      TxRxAxO'S       FAVORITE      xAxE?
TWISTER
