Ahhh... Bisto Biryani!
Yesterday, I asked what the following words have in common?
I suspect that Queny worked it out - because he's a smart guy and a magician - but he didn't post his solution, so I may be paying him too high a compliment! The only person who posted a comment and who got close was Scrooge, who wrote:
Honestly Brian, I have three mail boxes to check and several more messageboards and blogs to get through before work this morning. Can't we just have a witty thought for the day ?
And, when he'd finished complaining, went on...
I'm going for the fact that they are all nearly palindromes without actually quite being one because of the first letter ! That's my guess. If I'm allowed a second answer, it would be that you've got a former English teacher in the household. He'll tell you. Now what's the prize.
Well, no prizes, I'm afraid (due to predictable post-Christmas austerity) but Scrooge was close...
So, what was the answer?
Well, in all the words listed, if you take the first letter and place it at the end of the word and then spell the word backwards, it makes the same word as you started with!
