What is unique about the word "facetious" in the english language?
Once upon a time, i read about two words that were unique together [yes, that was an oxymoron like army intelligence, jumbo shrimp, etc... ] and facetious is one of them. If you can tell me both why facetious is 'unique' and what the other word is, you'll get bonus points. Well, at least a sincere thank you! Good Luck!
Well, facetious contains all of the "real" vowels in alphabetical order.
Yeps! a, e, i, o, and u all in alphabetical order. Any word (no pun intended) on what the other one is?
