Whats unique about: a tennis court?

-- mitch hearn (, December 23, 2001


Is it because it can have differret surfaces?- there are clay courts and there are grass courts. Though as a kid, I always played on asphalt.

The stumper has been up there for 3 hours with only one nibble so l

et me rephrase it: Whats unique about the phrase: A tennis court?

It uses the vowels - once each - in alphabetical order?

-- Chery in KS (, December 23, 2001.

I had noticed the colon in the original question and wondered what it was for. I'd like to go with Cheryl's answer, but what about "A reddish-brown duck"?

-- Cathy N. (, December 23, 2001.

The vowels in order is correct, mine neater only 3 words.

One more for today: What one word in English uses the two letters in order G Z?

Planes flying south:o)

Not trying to "one-up" you; just enjoyed the challenge of looking for words that go well in a phrase. I like word puzzles.

Zigzag is correct, what does planes flying south have to do with it?

-- mitch hearn (, December 23, 2001.

A E I O U in three words.

-- Cathy N. (, December 23, 2001.

Lets see you do it in two words!!??

-- mitch hearn (, December 23, 2001.

Better yet; do it with one word such as sAcrilEgIOUs or any of the other 23 available - remember whos chain you are rattleing.....

Cathy, this is not an attack, I am just having fun; lets do it backwards: sUbcOntInnEntAl or UncOmplImEntArY, can you give me two more? I am not myself tonight, there has been grape juice flowing, old grape juice, the kind granddad liked; now get your foot off of my tail!!??

Mitch are you really an English professor incognito????????

-- Melissa (, December 23, 2001.

No, Melissa; I am not involved in study of the English language; I am just an ignorant southern, bib over all wearing, balding, toothless, red neck idiot, cow tending, klod hopper wearing, tobacco spiting, waste of flesh whom happens to have a military GCT of 123, an IQ of 156; my education includes 44 credit hours towards an arch. eng. degree which I abandon due to poverty, hormones, and starvation. I survive on a four figure income, thank GOD for VA., it is enought if properly managed, I hope others can learn the same.

I can only hope others learn to get out of their own way, learn to think, learn to survive,; we are given a brain, why do others waste that given oppertunity?

-- mitch hearn (, December 23, 2001.

Mitch, if I were not so absolutely exhausted from baking and packing for this trip to Pennsylvania tomorrow, I could really have some fun with this vowels thing. I'll think about it on the way and when I'm back on line Friday I'll let you know what I've come up with.

And take a closer look at sacrIlegious:o)

-- Cathy N. (, December 23, 2001.

wow , Mitch,i have about 13 years of schooling done,long brown hair,really crowded teeth in places, big eyes,the iq of about 97 (when i cheat), i live a home completely funished thanks to my dad who works harder than anyone i know or have known, he's bald, i have a fat black cat with fleas, i like animals, i have milked a cow before, i wish i lived on a farm, i'v only even had chicken pox, a cold and the flu, i'm involved with the thing formerly known as colour, i love English, and am creative,but don't even claim to have a great talent with that particular subject, nor do i exceed in any other than art and music. i hate country music, i like to read, i like coupons, i think one day i just might avoid a tennis court (why change anything now?). i'll be nineteen in april. I'm just thankful we have soo much in common. =)

This is my way of appreciating what you've said, salute!

-- jillian (, December 24, 2001.

Yes Jillian, thats good but the real question is: are you cute enough to be seen with me??!!!! Don't take me seriously, unless you want to!!!! As for the cat with fleas, start sneaking a bit of garlic into the cat chow.

-- mitch hearn (, December 24, 2001.

cute?? sure that seems to be the only discription people give. AHHH LOOK AT YOUR CHEEKS. L----O-----L! Taking people seriously is sometimes just the door way for a whole new joke of some sort. As for the garlic, its been done. We have a moose stuff we're putting in her fur, and it makes her drool when she licks it. It keeps away the fleas. My sister combs her regularly, and finds quite a few. thanks for the suggestion though
