Wednesday Word Verifictionary Winner

(See sidebar for contest rules and past winners!)

This week's Cordon bleu grand prix
majorsteel
wwdlzzjd: "What would Dalai Lama , Zig-Zag man, and Jesus do?"
Note: Okay, don't get the idea that references to Jesus give you some kind of leg up in the contest, just because such references appear in the first two wining entries. Note also that there is a minor point deduction for treating the letter string as an acronym. But this entry just made up for it with a super-high score on the laff-o-meter.

Comments:
okay, my warped mind has to ask: if I switched some letters around and came up with a great one, could I enter your contest? Just wonderin'...
 
You chose the right winner for this week, Oscar. wwdlzzjd has actually been used in conversation around here - and it's not likely we are going to stop asking that dubious triumverate advice anytime soon.

Zig-Zag Man; he is very wise. Especially with the Dalai Lama on one hand and Jesus on the other...
