F (Hard) is a bit easier than some of the other letters, but hopefully it's still fun and has a small element of difficulty. That's what F (Insane) is there to do anyways. I saw an opportunity to do the pastas when I first looked these up, 'cause I thought were a few fun words that maybe some people would know? The next time there are enough commonly known ones will probably be when we reach the letters R and T. Many begin with C actually, but were way too obscure to be fun, even for C (Insane).

Oops, sorry. I just realized the "hard" referred to sound.

Just discovered this series of quizzes. Its nice to see all my GRE vocabulary words being used for something!

Bet those GRE vocabulary words didn't include pasta. There's the difference with these ones. ;)

@beforever Very true! I relied on the "Fusilli Jerry" episode of Seinfeld to help me with those :)

The only one I missed -- probably the word on the quiz that I use second or third most lol -- Fettuccine.
