by Sherry Riter in Chuckle

Husband And Wife Get Groceries

A husband and wife are shopping in their local WalMart. The husband picks up a case of Miller Lite beer and puts it in their cart. “What do you think you’re doing?” asks the wife.

“They’re on sale! 24 cans for only $10,” he replies.

“Put them back. It’s a waste of money,” demands the wife. They continued shopping.

A few aisles further along, the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket. “What do you think you’re doing?’ asks the husband.

“It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,” replies the wife.

Her husband retorts, “So does 24 cans of Miller Lite and it’s half the price.”

Will You Get It Right?

What do these words all have in common?

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

The answer is below.

Are you peeking? Did you give up already?!

Give it another try…

Look at each word carefully. This is so cool and I know you’re going to love it.

Nope. It is not that all the words have at least 2 double letters.

Ready to give up yet?

Let me know if you figured out the answer because I didn’t!

Scroll on a little further to find the answer below.

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.

I’ll do the first one:


Take the first letter and put it at the end.


Now spell it backwards.


Ha! It’s the same word!

Did you figure it out? If you didn’t, make sure you send this blog post to everyone because most of them won’t know the answer either! Of course, that will help us all feel better about not getting it right either. 😀

LMAO, I still think the face cream is the way to go, it lasts longer than a 24 pack does. 😉

Nope, I didn’t crack the puzzle without peeking at the answer.
PS, I never do too well with the IQ quizzes either 🙁

It’s probably because you have test anxiety. 😉

love the funny! 😀

…& as for the puzzle – I sort of got it… I didn’t think of moving the first letter to the end, but I did see that if you removed the first letter, each word was a palindrome – surely that counts!?! 😉

LOL I didn’t sort of get it at all! I should have known you would know it. LOL

This is cool! They’re almost like palindromes, but they’re not exactly like those! :p
