Brain Game: Charlie's Friend


Say hello to Michael, whose likes and dislikes will help you solve today's Brain Game Free-for-all Friday challenge. Good luck!

Michael likes the nickname Mike but hates to be called Mickey. He would rather stay at a hotel than a campsite. He'll have a sip of whiskey but steers clear of gin. Michael plays golf but doesn't care for tennis. And he'd rather fly Delta than Southwest. With all these in mind, which ONE of these three dances would Michael NOT like to perform? foxtrot, tango, polka

Here is the ANSWER.


Michael isn't a fan of the POLKA.

He likes things that are included in the phonetic alphabet, so he appreciates Mike (M), hotel (H), whiskey (W), golf (G), and Delta (D). Michael would gladly dance the foxtrot (F) and the tango (T) but not the polka, since P is "Papa."

NOTE: These puzzles sometimes lend themselves to alternate "correct" answers. If you came up with one, feel free to share it with us in the comments below. And have a great weekend!
