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" :lol:

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. :D

Too easy. :roll:

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"

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."
