Sometimes You've Got To Find The Right Word
On-Air Challenge:You'll be given three words. Name the fourth word that, when added to each of these words, creates a familiar two-word phrase. The answer will rhyme with one of the three words. For example, if you're given "boob," "inner" and "test," the fourth word would be "tube."
Last Week's Challenge:Think of a familiar two-word rhyming phrase that starts with the letter F, like "fat cat." Change the F to a G and you'll get another familiar two-word rhyming phrase. What are these phrases?
Answer: The first phrase is "fender bender." When you change the F to a G, the phrase becomes "gender bender."
Winner: Doug Roberts of Napa, Calif.
Next Week's Challenge comes from listener Douglas Heller of Flourtown, Pa.: Think of a two-word name of a nationally known chain of retail stores. Insert the second word of the name into the exact middle of the first. The result will spell the name of a well-known electronics manufacturer. What are these names?
