An Annoying Riddle

My first is in teapot but not in kettle

My second is in iron but not in metal

My third is in win but not in lose

My fourth is in sport but not in news

My fifth is in rhythm but not in tune

My sixth is in April but not in June

My seventh is in single but not in double

My eighth is in danger but not in trouble,

    What am I?

A jumbo airplane ?

Don - You've hit the jackpot! You're correct. Lisa you're runner up.

??? Well blow me down. Wot's a jumbo got to do with a teapot? Or a baseball match for that matter?. Being silly does apparently bring it's prizes Lisa. Go one further and be stoopid can bring you glory. Apparently. Think my stoopidity could bring me POTW? Entry question Don. What's a teapot, lose, April, May and June got in common? (think think mumble mumble) A jumbo airplane ? Yes Don! However did you guess (Yay!)

I'm so stoopid
Yay yay yay

So they say

I won't pain you with a second verse....?

Kate, Devon, Jason, Fish, Ruth - How come you didn't see jumbo airplane? Staring you in the face. Then of course us Aussies are stoopid. We excel at stoopid riddles. Kate you surprise me......

Don there is a lot of weird language thrown around the baseball diamond. I don't watch, but some announcers are rather zany...not unlike yourself.?

Like Jason I come back to my original assessment of Bran. "One mixed up poet. You gotta problem Bran"

He's messing with your mind folks. You'll end up silly like me and that would not be nice cos I got a copyright on silliness....?
