    you guys are chewing up my riddles and games pretty fast but I'll try you on another fairly easy one.

    Again, this is a common word used conversationally on a daily basis.

    OK, how 'bout a six letter word, used in English, with NO vowels?

    Does "y" count? If so, there are several:

    Crypts, rhythm, nymphs, trysts.

    If not--crwths. But that's not exactly a common word...

    Philistine: congratulations! What is your favorite color?

    (Here come the Monty Python cliche's!!!)

    -K.K.

    I was going to chime in with rythym but "Y" is usually considered a vowel. And some times "W"....


    Ya know.... I used to know how to spel

    Get Help

    Hawaii "Kid", if you wrote for Ron Glow, I feel very sorry for you, in helping you I did fencing a disservice. I also had other people helping you, and you don't deserve it. In trying to bring the two clubs together I put myself in a bad situation. At our last Hawaii Open, you actually stood on a chair and begin to claw at the wall, do you realize that? Get help.

    Sing it with me:

    "A lithium a day
    helps keep voices away.
    Have you had
    your lithium todaaaaaay?"

    Speaking of "Y"s, how 'bout a six letter word using 3 Ys?

    Clawing at the wall is optional.

    C'mon....no one can think of the famous 6 letter word, no vowels, 3 Y's?

    Lady Cristina? (even though a number of your 5 vowel words weren't in MY dictionary) ;)

    Hint: it's an astronomy term

    How about a word that names a person's profession, with 3 pairs of letters in it.... (eg: "aardvark" has a pair of "a"s)

    Just for the record, I can't tell you how relieved I am the Mango-fly doesn't know who I am.
    I don't know who "Ron Glow" is. I've never fenced in the Hawaii Open and I've never clawed at the walls in the presence of another fencer, and certainly not while standing on a chair.

    I do feel sorry for the clubs she mentioned if they are truly being distracted by her influence... Glad I live on a different island far far away.

    Don't feel bad, Kid(2):

    According to Jupgodragmangfly11, I'm a former fencing salle partner of hers who called her a "dog" in the newspaper after she had surgery.

    It's unclear whether I was standing in a chair at the time.

    Good call, Jeff, on the syzygy...I figured the astronomomy clue made it too easy!

    My god. Everyone who posted something here is very intelligent, I will admit. But you have to stop it - you are making me look bad. You should get out more, and when I say 'out' I don't mean go down the library with your other mates from MENSA, I mean go out and get drunk. With luck you'll kill a few braincells and slow down enough that the rest of us can catch up.... lol
