To all my intelligent friends

Post by oldbluefox »

I am posting this only to my smart friends. I could not figure it out. My first thought was wrong and I had to look at the answer. See if you can figure out what these seven words all have in common! Don't peek down for the answer.
1. Banana
2. Dresser
3. Grammar
4. Potato
5. Revive
6. Uneven
7. Assess


Are you peeping or have you already given up?
Give it another try....
Look at each word carefully.
No, it is not that they all have at least 2 double letters.


Answer is below!











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

Doesn't look as if you have many intelligent friends - can I just be your "dim" friend Foxy? I confess I had to look at the answer :crazy:

Sorry OBF You have one almost intelligent friend!!!
I thought of the more than one of the same letter until I scrolled down and saw your message that it wasn't that. Looked back through them again and realised that if the first letter was moved to the end it would read backwards the same word. Didn't scroll right down until I thought that was the only other possibilty.

Well I randomly scanned a few of the items and my initial thought of 'sex toys' was proved to be totally wrong :-(
