Quite a clever one!

Or why not Angela says, "the alphabet in reverse"?

Very easy but fun It's like when Dave says to Dan "Say goodnight, Dan" so Dan says "Goodnight Dan"

thats cool... i thought that angela would say the alphabet backwards!!


Posted by annie9698 on Oct 19, 2012

I agree with thinksforfun... say "the alphabet in reverse within 5 seconds"

Or, she could just do what was implied. I just checked, I can say, "zyxwvutsrqponmlkjihgfedcba" (saying the name of each letter) in a smidge under 4 seconds. It actually flows better backwards than forwards: tee-essarcupeeohenem is easier than emenohpeecue-are-esstee, for instance.

I agree; "the alphabet in reverse" or "alphabet the". Prefer the first.

Too easy.

I too thought that she just actually recited the alphabet backwards. I (along with many other ppl I know who also have East Coast roots) learned the alphabet backwards as children. In fact most of us knew it backwards months before we knew it forward. I can still recite it faster in reverse than I can in the "proper order"

Nice one, not too easy like one guy said, it's just for the simpler side of braingle.

Great teaser!! I thought the answer was thaat she said "The alphabet in reverse", but it's still gre

Posted by Candi7 on Mar 28, 2013

I agree with ThinksForFun

The answer could also be "the alphabet in reverse".

Or, she could even just say "teb-uh-fla uth."
"Fla" being pronounced like "flag" without the -g, and "uth" being pronounced as "other" without the -er.
That would more accurately be "reverse."

Posted by sciencesteven on Apr 15, 2014
