(Not (really) so much) fun with words

November 18, 2010

Someone sent me this little word puzzle. They said it was a lot of fun. I didn’t think it was so much fun, but your mileage may vary. I did think it was interesting so I’m passing it on to whoever should happen upon this.

The seven words below all have something in common and I didn’t figure it out. See if you can figure it out. The answer is below.

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

Answer below…

Okay, here’s the answer…

Answer:
In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter of a word and place it at the end of the word and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word.

It really wasn’t worth it, was it?

    I guess I don’t find that much amusement in games like that. It was interesting, but not enough to where I sat down and actually tried to figure it out.

      I tried to figure it out and failed. What gets me though is who figured it out in the first place?
