Eight letter words I am asking thee,
Common 3rd, 4th, and 5th, these three.
They all have tea, but they don't eat pea.
Four vowels each, an "a" an absentee.

The first is a mistake, the second a tree,
the third is a pest that stings like a bee.

What are the three words?





What Next?

Fun, but I only count three vowels each. Am I missing something? (I still would not have gotten it. :-)

I would understand how he would count three vowels instead of four. Some people would not count U as one when it follows Q. Just depends on culture. Any how, I like this one.

thanks. If U when after Q is not a vowel, what is it? Will QU be counted as one letter? thanks for the info.
