There are over 50 naughty words hidden in the grid. Prizes for completion

This year Glastonbury’s Shangri-La crew were selling a newspaper which donated all proceeds of the sale towards easing the refugee crisis. I’ve seen them go for £5 on ebay. Inside this newspaper you will find Turdsearch, a word search which I devilishly secreted over 50 bad words in a 20 x 20 grid. Some of these naughty words are tortuously upside-down or backwards, or both.

Some of them are normal reading and really easy to spot.


There were no contenders for the prize during the festival itself, which achingly ended only two weeks ago. If you want to be in with a chance to win some original artwork then you are best advised to print off the Turdsearch and use a pen to find the words, unless you’re a whiz and can draw over the digital version in a visible colour in DPaint IV or something.

When you think you have found them all, send the completed grid with all the words lined out via

  • Email to info@chu.jordan-taylor.co.uk with subject line that reads TURDSEARCH ENTRY, or
  • Send a Tweetwith a photograph of the comp[leted grid in full and the hashtag #turdsearch to @chu3d

My fellow scrutineers and I will analyse the submitted grids for clarification and with due diligence, the winner will be announced as soon as we have one.

Be warned – there is more than one red herring…
