I am sorry but this there is no rhyme this time:
The paragraph below is very unusual. How quickly can you find out what is so unusual about it?
"Gatsby was walking back from a visit down in Branton Hill's manufacturing district on a Saturday night. A busy day's traffic had its noisy run; and with not many folks in sight, His Honor got along without having to stop to grasp a hand, or talk; for a mayor out of City Hall is a shining mark for any politician. And so, coming to Broadway, a booming bass drum and sounds of singing, told of a small Salvation Army unit carrying on amidst Broadway's night shopping crowds. Gatsby , walking towards that group, saw a youg girl, back toward him, just finishing a long, soulful oration ... "
The above passage is allegedly taken from the book "Gatsby" written by Ernest Vincent Wright in the late 1930s.

Highlight the box below for answer. Spoiler for those wanting to figure it out for themselves.

Passedpawn any chance of a hint?
Is it three words, none of them lint?
If it is, maybe I figured out two,
Of the answer for this thing you pursue.

Dan, the man, the riddle dancer,
Look closely now, you'll see at the answer.

3 words I guess if you spread them abreast.

Either this riddles real simple
And answered in the middle
Or I'm quite wrong
And get donged

So I'll just fake
The answer I state
Maybe "HomeBrewTalk"
That's outta the box.


EDIT Home Brew Town!
