My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

One of these things is not like the others.....

One of these things just doesn't belong... (I guess I'm keeping that Sesame Street theme going today....)

Here is Wednesday's Brain Bender:

Which of the words below is least like the others? (The difference has nothing to do with vowels, consonants or syllables.)
  • BANK
  • BEAR
  • FAIR
  • FIND

Like always, answer to be found in the comments later.

Update: The official discount Mensa calendar answer is FIND. (All the others have more than one meaning.) So today's official smartypants is Rachel from Pereiraville!

With the whole "noun vs. verb" debate I found that FAIR can be used as a verb, granted an obscure one.
tr.v. faired, fairĀ·ing, fairs
To join (pieces) so as to be smooth, even, or regular: faired the aircraft's wing into the fuselage.

At any rate... Thanks for playing, everybody! See you tomorrow!
