They're all letters in the abbreviation for highway!
Finding a hard time saying this succinctly. They all have pronunciations that do not indicate the kind of sound a person is supposed to make when speaking a word (i.e. we don't say "aitch-elp me!" or "Follo-double-yew me!")
I'm gonna go with non-intuitive spellings for the letters ("hache," "double u," "wye").
(Turns out H is spelled "aitch" or "eitch." Not sure where I got "hache" from.)
For some reason I became fixated on the idea of these being the middle initials of the last three presidents. Please tell me his name was really "William Yefferson Clinton."
Daniel's got it. (I thought of it as "the sound they make is not in their letter name.")Sam - Upon further research, it looks like H can also be spelled "haitch," so that's probably where you got "hache." (I honestly had no idea that the letters had "official" spellings. I thought it was just phonetic.)Summer - Ha! I wish. :)
I thought I left this comment earlier, but apparently it didn't go through.They're composed of straight lines, are symmetrical about the y-axis, an they can all hold water if you pour it on top of them.And I guess there's the whole actual answer too, but I like mine better :P
Alana - Nice!I guess that group would also include V, M, and X.
