VIII) The Birds
The grandfather bird sits on top.
The sentence is referencing each bird’s status in a “family” tree.
Each word represents a common family name that goes with it, and the grandfather is the oldest family member and hence sits on top.
Sugar daddy (or baby)
Farmer’s daughter
Undercover brother
Fortunate son
Mother goose
Grandfather clause
Twisted sister
Uncle Buck
Father Time

IX) String Order
Each word can unscramble into a number after removing one letter:
1-8 TWO -- N
2-3 ONE -- N
3-7 EIGHT -- O
4-1 FOUR -- M
6-2 NINE -- L
8-5 TEN -- D
9-6 SIX -- A
10-4 THREE -- I
Match the left number with the appropriate “spelled” word, and the right number is the order of the omitted letter from it. Once unscrambled you get MANDOLIN…which is no guitar of course.
