Have your friends play this word game where they have to say the word bears aloud multiple times. The trick is to have them say the word as many times as you can just for your own amusement.
Show them this list of words. Write it out on a piece of paper or draw them on a napkin. Tell them it’s a brain teaser. First ask them to say the word “bears” aloud before each of the words. After they do so, ask them to say the word “bears” aloud after each of the words. Ask them if they notice a pattern or message emerging? My guess is they will not know what you are talking about.
