Wednesday Word Verifictionary: Sometimes Life is Unfair ...

... but Word Verifictionary rookie, Mr. Verb, is this biweek's winner on his very first known try! Congratulations!

First Prize
Mr. Verb

Yes, I admit I was very impressed by his phonetically correct symbols, but I'm not going to penalize him for being a professional linguist.

More importantly, Oscar, how's that ankle coming along?
