Wednesday (Thursday) Word Verificationary: "Okay, I'll play your little game"

This week, for the second time, Word Verificationary sees the equivalent of a home run in the first major league at bat. Only Mr. Verb had previously achieved this feat of winning on the first try, which apparently so impressed and humbled him that he has never tried WV again. Let's hope such reticence doesn't overcome this week's winner. (For a list of major league baseball players who homered in their first at bat, see here.)

First Prize
ann althouse
dpvenm: "due process venom" -- an execution by lethal injection after plenty of habeas corpus.
I should note that Althouse had some verbal throat clearing and thinking aloud that I edited out. The full text:
okay, I'll play your little game... dp venom... but what is "dp"? In my notes, it's always "due process." But what is "due process venom"? I'm going to say an execution by lethal injection after plenty of habeas corpus.
