I was sitting at Landra Hort's Mystery Ice Cream Shoppe slurping on the last of my Birou Sundae when I noticed a man walk up to the counter and ask the cashier for a free scoop. The cashier said, "Give me a word with no two." The man said to her:
The cashier smiled and said, "Excellent! What flavor would you like?"
The man asked for the smooth Mean Chart Hug Nag, and received one scoop for free.
Mystified, I watched as someone else walked in and asked for a free scoop. The cashier asked the same question: "Give me a word with no two." The customer said:
and received his scoop of the spicy Devious ice cream. Determined to find the pattern, I sat and watched day after day, making a note of what words had "no two." Here is a small sample:
laptop, mathematics, mist, overflow, green, three, four, score, cream.
And a few words that didn't make it:
puzzling, stack, exchange, (someone had ideas, I guess ;D) red, one, two, upvote.
One poor fellow was denied after giving the word
He clarified that he meant flour rather than flower and received his scoop of Grape Nut Leper Lin.
For what it's worth, some of the other flavors that I heard ordered were Mix-o Hone and H. M. Moe.
Confident of my success, I went up to the counter after a week of observation and asked for a free scoop of ice cream. The cashier, as usual, said, "Give me a word with no two." I responded with
and happily enjoyed my free scoop of Ring Herder ice cream.
