Can you give 5 of the 16 words that have "M" as the first and last letters of words that also have an "M" or two within them?

The only one I can think of offhand is momentum. I'll have a cup of coffee and try to wake up a few more brain cells....

Happy New Year, Mitch!

Minimum is one. Can't think of others right now.

I surprised Vicki didn't post Maximum also. Oh well, at least I finally got something on the stumpers. Just don't expect to see me here often:)

OOPS! I got carried away. re-read the question and now I'm red.

-- george (bngcrview@aol.com), January 01, 2002.

Mammogram, memorandum, momism, Mormonism.......that's all I can think of right now.

7 of 16 with mixed credits, so this calls for a new question.

What is the uniqueness that applies to B M P W and no other letters?

-- mitch hearn (moopups@citlink.net), January 01, 2002.

You can flip 'em over upside down and still have legitimate letters! :-)

-- Cheryl in KS (cherylmccoy@rocketmail.com), January 01, 2002.

Cheryl, you could do that with X and O also, but their not included.

-- mitch hearn (moopups@citlink.net), January 01, 2002.

You might try saying the alphabet aloud to answer this one.~

-- mitch hearn (moopups@citlink.net), January 01, 2002.

My two lips go together when I pronounce them? Don't know of another way to put it!

-- Annie (mistletoe6@earthlink.net), January 01, 2002.

Yes, Annie; the letters must include a closed mouth to be pronounced correctly, seperate of the other letters. Watch for your warm and fuzzy in the mail!! __o__^..^__o__

-- mitch hearn (moopups@citlink.net), January 01, 2002.

I thought of that, but didn't think it was right. Congrats Annie!

-- Melissa (me@home.net), January 02, 2002.

Hey thanks, Melissa. If Mitch wouldn't have given that last clue, I never would have gotten it. When I started saying the alphabet out loud, I first started singing it like you learn in grade school! Dave was looking at me like I was nuts! He thinks I've already got cabin fever and we've only had a couple weeks of cold weather. Hope I can keep my sanity until Spring! :)
