Hah! 'zu, you are a caution!
You're probably right if enough 'niks have the appetite.
While not written in stone it seems that the winner of the previous game is mooted as the runner of the next.
Perhaps yarb - the owner of the trophy special edition sweet tooth fairy coffee mug
"molotov cocktail waitress" - should therefore be sounded out.
But if no-'nik else wishes to run it, then I am happy to do it - gangerhnam-style of course.
Oh dear, ruzuzu, yes. (Re your comment Feb 11 2012).
The origins are missing and it's not OK for them to be shrouded in mystery, for they are far more interesting than mere mystery.
Jean Dimmock is a character in Jasper Fforde's wonderfully absurd book 'The Fourth Bear'.
Or rather, she features in the book in an extract quoted from 'The Bumper Book Of Berkshire Records 2004 Edition'.
And I quote -
'MOST CONFUSING WORD ASSOCIATION EXAMINEE
Jean Dimmock of Newbury, UK, holds the record for the most random answers in a routine word association test. Among her many utterly haphazard responses were such gems as "Bird? Kneecap", "Banana? Bowling Trophy" and "Great Crested Grebe? Disraeli." Her responses are spontaneous and unrehearsed, and make for much interesting study. She also holds the record for the most bizarre interpretations of a Rorschach ink-blot test, variously describing the meaningless and largely discredited patterns as "A dog doing push-ups with an ant in attendance" and "Coco the clown in conversation with the Pope".'

We've discovered two ways to get in touch with other word*i*s. The first way is to write a comment on one of their lists. The second is to go to their "dashboard" (or profile page), scroll down past all of their recent comments, and look for the orange "comments for..." box about halfway down the page.
You cannot escape the charge that you have previously engaged in the amazing pastime that is IDENTIFY THE WORDIE. You are therefore prime target material for inviting to IDENTIFY THE WORDIENIK. The whole of the bit of Wordnik that joins in on this would be truly honoured should you participate this time round. Easily find the right page right now because it is currently the most commented on list shown on the Community page.
Hi gangerh! I sent you an email, but am also leaving you a comment in case my email was spaminated ... can I entice you into giving me a quote or two about sweet tooth fairies? I'm hoping to write about them for the Boston Globe.
Hey, shane wanna'by, would love to bat to your bowling! As I'm a fan of yourn, then, you've a good chance of your flip hitting! (What are you doing retiring from Test cricket when you do THAT in the IPL?)
'Twas the first match of the season here Saturday just gone and am still getting selected for the 2nd team. At 63, wow! Us 137 for 7, them 131 all out with 4 overs to spare. Very exciting game and I scored 6. So without me it would have been a tie! HaHa!
I was thinking of you today. It's early in the season, the training sessions are underway but a few have been washed-out. I sit at my desk, trying to get the leggies going as I mentally compose my next Wordie post. Ok so far, let's try the top-spinner. Hmmmm, a bit loopy but might bowl head-in-the-air johnnies. It's hot here, still 27C at midnight. Let's have a go at the wrong 'un. Nice, I like it! Hey, this season I might even try to bowl a flipper ... U4+@Y&^&8yu%$#!!!!!
