Puzzler 11/7, "Perfect Words" -- add yours!


#1

This week’s puzzler answer got me thinking about what others I could come up with. If you didn’t catch it, the “perfect words” in the puzzler are words in which the number of letters matches their place in some list – for example, “Mars,” which is the fourth planet and has four letters.



A few I found:



Comet (fifth reindeer listed in “A Visit From St. Nicholas”)

Wrath (fifth deadly sin)

Help! (only if you count the !, the Beatles’ fifth UK album)


#2

aa
2nd word in unabridged dictionaries, meaning a kind of lava
Sixtus I
7th pope, leaving off the "Saint"
Saint Zephyrinus
15th pope
Joshua
6th book of the Bible
John
4th book of the New Testament
Romans
6th book of the New Testament
I
1 in Roman numerals
II
2 in Roman numerals
III
3 in Roman numerals
one and two-thirds dozen
20
four score and seven minus sixty
27


#3

A few good ones and a few not so good ones:

(golden) rings - 5
Friday (6th day of week on calander)
dodecahedron (12 sides)
decathalon (10 events)
Jackson (7th president)
VanBuren (8th president)
Franklin Pierce (14th president)
A = 1st letter of alphabet
CEE = 3rd letter of alphabet
Michael - 7th child in the musical Jackson family
Marlon - 6th child in the musical Jackson family


#4

My list…

Thirteeeeenth
Friday (if you start with Sunday)
Franklin Pierce (fourteenth president)
Stephen Grover Cleveland (22nd & 24th president, rarely used first name, though)
Delaware (alphabetically the eighth state)
Australia (alphabetically the ninth member of the United Nations)
San Francisco (twelfth largest US city by population http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_cities_by_population )
K2 (second highest peak in the world)
Yellow (sixth longest river in the world)

#5

Three more:

re (from the do-re-mi etc. solfege scale)
indigo (from the red-orange-yellow-green-blue-indigo-violet rainbow sequence)
nod (from Wynken, Blynken, and Nod)


#6

A couple of more:

Pinky (fifth finger)
Home (as in Home Plate - 4th base)

A little more obscure:

Vespasian (9th Roman Emperor)
Procyon and Achernar (7th and 8th brightest stars in the sky)
Propylene (has 9 atoms - must be a lot like this)


#7

SABBATH (on the 7th day He rested)

PERFECTION ( “10” As in Nadia Comenici. Or Bo Derek.)


#8

This couldn’t be funnier. After I posted the above, I was rummaging around the CarTalk.com website. I winced to find out my turbo diesel Jetta is on the list of chick cars, but I also found out that…

the VIPER is fifth on the list of guy cars, and the Ford

F150 comes in at number four.

I tried to find my Jetta on the guy car list but I was redirected to a Martha Stewart website. Tom and Ray… how do I explain this to my wife?


#9

Some are a bit of a stretch, but “thirteeeeeenth” wins it all, hands down!! Still laughing


#10

Leno (fourth host of The Tonight Show)
Lakers (won sixth NBA championship)
Nationals (won ninth NBA championship)


#11

Correction: Leno (fourth and sixth host of the tonight show).


#12

Tom - The Third Most Popular Of The “Car Talk” Maggliozzi Brothers.

Ray - Coincidently, The Third Most Popular Of The “Car Talk” Maggliozzi Brothers.
