There are 10 parts of the human body that are just three letter words. Can you name them?


Don't cheat. Don't share your answers; just how many you got.

Okay, I have 10, but 1 is a maybe.

Answer? Do you want my list as a scroll-down?

ETA: you really shouldn’t get me started on stuff like this. I now have 11.

Piggyback on body parts. It's in white as suggested by a poster so you can hover over it and it shows.

It took me a while to think of one.. and then two...

Apparently my brain is more focused on history this morning (see 1956's post above)

I’m not even opening the history quiz, not my strong suit.

Thanks for the answers. I thought of all 10 and had 2 more:
*lid (honestly, my eye doctor doesn’t say eyelid, he just says lid)
*orb (google says: “LITERARY an eyeball; an eye.”)
