I went online and pulled out 15 riddles, some easy, some nearly impossible. Then I posted
them all over the floor on a Sunday night. The first resident to turn in all 15 answers by
Friday, or the resident with the most correct answers on Friday, got a free pizza (donated
after one phone call). I was overwhelmed by the response, and my residents really had fun
with a program that dealt with academic issues outside of the classroom.

My idea for program is
another brainteasing game. You spell words that don't make sense to the eye, but when you
hear them they make sense and they are really really funny. Here is an example "Wil
yume airy mee" When you say it out loud it sounds like "Will you marry me?"
For advertising you can make up your own word teaser. For example: Command Joy Nussin Lot
Suffun--"Come and join us in lots of fun!!" If you don't use it for a program it
works well in advertising!!!
