I have tried to just increase the margins on the sides from 1 inch to 3/4 & 1/2 ” and change font sixe to 9 or 10 but the results are a gigzaw puzzel.

Anyways, one of his opening comments during the film was a story he recalled to one of his teachers that was very similar to your about Africa and South America fitting together like pieces of a gigzaw puzzle.

The OCC – putting the glass in must be one heck of a tough job – like a giant gigzaw puzzle
discussion of building design

Beth worked on a gigzaw puzzle and the kids and I played Uno, Sequence and War…

This is a rather amusing substitution. What interests me about it is that the perps apparently do not have the image of a jigsaw cutting a picture into puzzle pieces in mind when they hear people say “jigsaw puzzle”. Conceivably a case for eggcornicity could be made if we had reason to believe that the perps were assuming “Gigzaw” to be the name of the inventor of the “gigzaw puzzle”, but that doesn’t seem real likely.

Re: gigzaw

Of course, they might think the tool is called a gigzaw, too.
