Test your word power

Postby Infidel » Wed 03.14.2007 12:46 am

These questions pit your knowledge of English, or abilities with google, against your poor minds stuck in the gutter. Can you pull your mind out of the gutter to think of the right answer? Answers are not necessarily common words.

1. A word that begins with an S, Ends with an X, and has an E in the middle

[spoiler]salteaux[/spoiler]


2. A 4 letter for a woman than ends in -unt.

[spoiler] Aunt [/spoiler]

3. What animal sounds like a body part men are known for enhancing surgically.
[spoiler] Hare [/spoiler]

... Question 1 plus question 2 remind me of a joke I heard in a movie once...

EDIT: I had posted the question, but felt embarrassed about it so I am deleting it real quick!! The movie was "The Snapper" and it starred the Chief Engineer (Colm Meany, I think?) from Star Trek: The Next Generation and was about poor irish people. ^_^

Funny movie, raunchy joke. If someone knows it, y'all can post it, but I can't. *-.-*

Skeezix.

Aunt. Although every 28 days or so that could change to uh...*ahem* never mind.

3. What animal sounds like a body part men are known for enhancing surgically.

Titmouse?

So did I. I guessed suplex, runt, and bees (which sound a lot like my knees, doncha know.) :D

What was the 'expected' dirty answer for the animal?

With "wrong" I meant "in the gutter wrong".

I guess I'm just not dirty -enough-, because I didn't know either. I kept thinking there is no animal called 'penis' so it just doesn't make sense. Infidel's clue cleared that up, though.... at least I wasn't the only one who didn't get it. :p

I got them all wrong :@ lol
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

1 was really hard. I used merriam webster and the * to get a list there were more common words, but that was the only one with an e exactly in the middle.

Suplex is a good answer too. :) I'd grade that ok :)

Aha... right in the middle. なるほど。 This was a very interesting quiz, by the way.

You're right; I should have figured it out a long time ago. Just haven't used that word in awhile, so I had a vocabulary lapse.

Speaking of which, Mike's friend can often save you from misusing words.

It's like the South Park thing my friend told my about...

People who annoy you: N _ G G E R S

____

I could only guess for the first one... the other two just left me blank. Anyhow, my one guess was 'Sussex,' though I don't know if that counts as a word.

Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

Their brain? ;)

I know, I know, feminist joke, but that's the second thing that came to mind when I read that.
