Stupid @*!#ing word puzzles

My evil sister and sinister mom (Hi MOM!) have planted a terrible word puzzle in my head. Due to severe lack of sleep, (I got back at 3:30 am and still had to be at work at 8:00 am) I am unable to come up with any ideas. I know it has probably been discussed before and will probably be easily solved, please, help me!

Are we supposed to unjumble the letters to form the word lineup or what’s the “puzzling” part of the puzzle?

Sorry, no you aren’t supposed to unjumble them, it’s like

score
under = underscore

It should just mean a simple phrase

Hmmm. Seems to be something like “mixed lineup” or “random lineup”.

There are a whole bunch of these types of work puzzles in “The Omni book of Games” by Scot Morris. It has other word puzzles like:

U all S

now
Answer: All between us is over now.
and the ever popular:

ecnalg
Answer: Backward glance

I loved those puzzles. Some of them were really tough.

Possibly “shuffled lineup”.

It’s “line up in alphabetical order”

and no I haven’t seen this one before.

Good call, Degrance!

Now maybe poor li’l Poysyn can get some sleep! :frowning:
