I like it. Can anyone think of a a foursome wherein each one could be odd man out?

I also remember a mock IQ test question with four of those annoying little diagrams you're supposed to pick the one that was least like the others? Everyone except one was unlike all the others in some respect, so the one that wasn't unlike all the others was unlike all the others in that it wasn't unlike all the others.

(I daresay if we played a literal game of Odd Man Out there wouldn't be one single guy left on this board).

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming....

You mean I've been wasting my time trying to figure any connection between even any pair of your words, FF?

This brings to mind another possibility: how about picking four random words (from a dictionary or something) and then finding something, anything, that three of them have in common?
