"Chair" is the first syllable of "charity".

Yes
16(14.2%)
No
97(85.8%)


(Inspired by Chapter 19 of The Handmaid's Tale: "I sit in the chair and think about the word chair. It can also mean the leader of a meeting. It can also mean a mode of execution. It is the first syllable in charity. It is the French word for flesh. None of these facts has any connection with the others.")
