Ordinary yet Unique!

Aug 25, 2012

RAY: This was sent in by Wes Daniels. He asks, "What's unique about the following paragraph?"

"This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact nothing is wrong with it. It is highly unusual though, study it and think about it but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching."

So the question is, what is unique about the paragraph?

RAY: Here's the answer. What makes this paragraph unusual is that it is missing the letter "e".

TOM: It has no e's in it?

RAY: Not a single e.

TOM: Brilliant!
