Hangman game backward version 2 - guess what was the question, with only 1 letter missing:

fill in a "b" - I might lose control anytime, so keep me on my toes.
fill in an "m" - my brothers are all metalhead but me.
fill in a "p" - my buddy has two big tusks and loves to carry me around all day long.
fill in a "w" - This is usually where the presidents stay.

Again, your answer can be in the form of:

The question was: _ p p l e

followed by explanation.

  • $\begingroup$ Great problem! I actually use all four things so they were all in my domain. I think this solution is harder for people who aren't actually familiar with the words. $\endgroup$ – LeppyR64 Apr 29 '15 at 19:38

    $\begingroup$ @JasonLepack Nice one! I can understand with wallet, mallet and pallet, but I am just curious if ballet applies too? $\endgroup$ – Alex Apr 29 '15 at 19:55

The question was:

_allet

fill in a "b" - I might lose control anytime, so keep me on my toes.

Ballet - Dancers dance on their toes all the time

fill in an "m" - my brothers are all metalhead but me.

Mallet - Rubber or sometimes wooden headed hammer, as opposed to the metal ones.

fill in a "p" - my buddy has two big tusks and loves to carry me around all day long.

Pallet - They are usually picked up by forklifts

fill in a "w" - This is usually where the presidents stay.

Wallet - Presidents is a slang term for money in the USA because all of their bills have pictures of their presidents.
