Example: LAWN SAND JEALOUS (place)

Here's a Fun Test For You

Now count aloud the F's in that sentence. Count them ONLY ONCE; do not go back and count them again. Then see answer below...
There are six F's in the sentence. One of average intelligence finds three of them. If you spotted four, you're above average. If you got five, you can turn your nose at almost anybody. If you caught six, you are a genius.
There is no catch. Many people forget the OFs. The brain of English speaking people tend to see them as "V's" instead of "F's".
