nothing wrong with having some easy ones every once in a while

How about a harder consecutive letter triple then - mno?

Not really a word, but I've been trying to play one on the piano recently so it's been stuck in my head, and it does have a lovely sound to it.

mmhmm

I'm going to say mno again, since Gymnopédie is not an English word, but rather the title of a specific musical composition.

I'm actually playing a song in band that has a hemidemisemiquaver. I kid you not. In fact, many of them.

I just cooked my dinner over charcoal briquettes. Although I wish the fish I cooked hailed from Fiji, I was looking for a word you don't capitalize containing my iji.

'Frabjous' doesn't work, so I'll have to go with something boring like 'subjugate'.

Hotdog. Football on the brain?

Can anyone think of a family-friendly word containing the string 'fuc'?

Well, raptor farms... something something... manners... mumble... napkins folded...

Ok, I really give up. If anyone can make even a vaguely funny joke about raptors, tractors, and napkins, please share it with usq all.

This one time my raptor girlfriend said I got pregnant from a tractor.

Pretend like some part of that makes sense.

*edit that only thing I can think of that has that string, is Qusqu, which is a region in the Peru that had to do with the Inca's. Which funny enough is who I play as in Civ4! But I don't think that should count so someone else find a real solution
