What English word is nine letters long, and can remain an English word at each step as you remove one letter at a time, right down to a single letter. List the letter you remove each time and the words that result at each step.

Give up?

New Riddle:

A farmer was going to town with a fox, a goose and a sack of corn. When he came to a stream, he had to cross in a tiny boat, and could only take across one thing at a time. However, if he left the fox alone with the goose, the fox would eat the goose, and if he left the goose alone with the corn, the goose would eat the corn. How does he get them all safely over the stream?

New Riddle:

I am one simple word, but I mean different things.

One of my meanings brings great forceful swings,

The other of me has nice curves, like the first...

But only one meaning can help quench a thirst.

One of my meanings will often bring cheers,

Either of them could hold a few beers.

What is the word?

The toothpicks were arranged in the form of digits. After he took away the 'one' made of toothpicks there were 9 toothpicks remaining.


I swear I did not cheat. Was I right?

No, but you're on the right track :raspberry:

12 toothpicks, minus one = 11 toothpicks which spells NINE
