I have been inspired (for inspiration's sake, not by topic) by the wisdom of the woubit, as I have been reading the older archived posts... I hope that the puzzle does not turn this into an insult to Mr. Burn... Let the interrogation begin!

Is the fact that the word can be rotated 180° and remains the same relevant?

Is there any connection between the meaning of the English word 'mow' and the meaning of the acronym?

An acronym for three separate, English words (Or in the form prisoner-of-war)?

Just a few wild shots:

M = mother/master/mr./mrs./ms. Is it a substantive?

O = of/over/on/outside Is it a preposition? An adjective? And adverb?

W = war/work/water/Winterbottom/washmania Is it a substantive?

An acronym for three separate, English words (Or in the form prisoner-of-war)? yes to all these, but this one is not it

Just a few wild shots:

M = mother/master/mr./mrs./ms. Is it a substantive? none of these... please define 'substantive'

O = of/over/on/outside Is it a preposition? An adjective? And adverb? 'on' is the correct word

W = war/work/water/Winterbottom/washmania Is it a substantive? none of these, see above

So this has nothing to do with the card game? Darn... fun game.

Please insert appropriate questions asking if ONE of the non 'on' words is correct where applicable if the whole statement isn't correct.
