Look for Longer

How well do you know the London Underground? Test your knowledge with this cool on-line game that was launched yesterday.  Look-for-longer is a quirky montage (see below) of puns that show 75 stations. So far I've identified 49. It's getting harder.  See how well you do and report back to me in a few days. I'll be incredibly impressed with anyone who can do it in one day.

My son and I got them all. The hardest was the glue, think what glue does to two items, and the Dog. Went through all the greens and I'd love to know how the first part is signified. The TV too was a problem but saying what the rope is doing and to what gives it.
