BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.

I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.

HINT: People are taking this riddle literally, think of a play on words that might be the longest in the English language.

This week’s brain teaser:

  5. I’ve always thought that ‘antidisestablishmentarianism’ was the longest word in the English language. I honestly cannot think of a play on words that fits the bill, so I hope someone gets it right so I know.
