TO MY INTELLIGENT FRIENDS:

I am sending this only to my smart friends. I could not figure it out and had to look at the answer. See if you can figure out what these words have in common.


(don't peek).

1. Banana
2. Dresser
3. Grammar
4. Potato
5. Revive
6. Uneven

Are you peeking or have you already given up? Give it another try..... Look at each word carefully. You'll kick yourself when you discover the answer.
This is so cool.....







I will post the answer tonight.

They each have two letters (a vowel and a consonant) that repeat?

Ask your doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.

Each word starts and ends with a letter from the alphabet.

If you define cowardice as running away at the first sign of danger, screaming and tripping and begging for mercy, then yes, Mr. Brave man, I guess I'm a coward. - Jack Handy

Take the first letter and put it on the end, then read it backwards. You'll get the same word you started with.

Also what jebba said.

all of the words rhyme with some other word that does not appear in the list

The second and last letters match, as do the third and second last.

1. ananaB
2. resserD
3. rammarG
4. otatoP
5. eviveR
6. nevenU

Take the first letter off and move it to the end. now read it backwards.

That's what i meant, and I am sure a few others, when they said they got it.
