Testing your wits



Hi, want to play? No? Too bad, I am forcing you to. I will train your logical thinking skills to look for unusual laws lurking in outwardly ordinary lists of words. In this paragraph, I want you to look for what is missing. Although my words may look ordinary, this is not typical writing. An unusual constraint limits my words. I could not put just any word in this paragraph. Many words simply would not fit. Did you find it? Is your brain in pain? What is missing in this paragraph?


Answer: (Right click your mouse and highlight below)
There is no letter E in the paragraph.

OK,OK. I know the paragraph is incorrect. I do not know why. I would say so here. I am losing brain cells. I right-clicked and tried to highlight but it did not work. I am going to cry. I need a beer first.

There are no E's, right?

I'VE GOT IT! THERE ARE NO E'S!

...which was in no way inspired by the hidden answer or the comment directly above mine...
