The game show thread reminded me of this.
There was a game show hosted by Tom Kennedy called “Split Second.”
One of the questions was something like this:
“Excluding plurals, there are only three words in the English language that start with ‘manho-’ One is ‘manhole.’ What are the other two?”
I remember that one was “manhood,” but I didn’t remember the other one. The only other word I’ve found is “man-hour,” which is obviously hyphenated. I presume that that is the third word.
Just something pointless to share.
