sure is :) The anagram of wolf is fowl. The homonym of fowl is foul. The antonym of foul is fair. The homonym of fair is fare. The anagram of fare is fear, which is the emotion.

Done that in school,over and over!

Quote:Albert Einstein wrote this riddle early during the 19th century. He said that 98 % of the world's population would not be able to solve it.
