Hey, I know!

I thought for sure by now someone would have come up with an easy WordPress plugin to make Wordles. Yes, they do…erm, but “wordle” is what some people call those word cloud things. That wasted a lot of googling.

Finally, I rummaged up a link to a standalone “make your own Wordle” page and then had to learn how to embed a live web page within my post. I HAD TO LEARN SOMETHING, PEOPLE! It was awful.

I think this will work. Let me know if it doesn’t. Sorry it temporarily ruins my monochrome blog, but weasels can’t be choosers.

Oh! All credit to the site that created the page I’m embedding: strivemath.com. Seems to be a cool math visualization site for kids.

Ready? GO!

Is this fun? I don’t know. If it isn’t, we’ll stop.

I got it in three but it got my brain cells a little smokey in the process of trying to find a word that worked…

On the other hand coulda had this in two but I ain’t lucky. I coulda been a contender, I tell ya!

Wordle 317 4/6

Here’s the link to the wordle I generated…

Ignore the “Make your own wordle” button

The copy button doesn’t work.

Doesn’t it? Worked for me. I wonder if it’s because I’m the owner.

You can screen cap? Shift-Windows button-S.

I don’t want to give away the answer in case somebody else wants to play the game…

Sorry, the interwebs is for porn and weird Death Pool websites. I leave puzzles for the Illuminati…

5/6 which is nothing to get excited about except for the fact that this was my very first wordle.

I like it. It is fun!

4/6, and I am no longer a wordle virgin.

Am I supposed to smoke a cigarette now or something?

I am embarrassed to say it took me four guesses.

I ain’t learning any new stuff!
I gits all I can do figuring out moisture barriers and air flows and R values for the vaulted ceiling in the 1850 house.

Plus this all ends once Lord Musk assumes full control of the one thing that stands between us and the fall of Democracy! Why aren’t you fighting this by screaming at passing clouds!!!!!?????

Hosever, do carry on, this is supposed to be fun I think, not serious 😸

So did the embedding work or not? I’ve got a week of ’em queued up. No, there’s not a theme.

@Stoaty, the embedded game worked just fine except for the copy button which is not much of a problem. I’m looking forward to more!

It took me 5 out 6 to get it. It’s the first time I ever played Wordle, so I suppose that isn’t too horrible.

@ Stoaty…I gotta bunch of these queued up too.

What’s scary is the number of birthdays one probably has accumulated if you can remember seeing those replayed on TV and even worse the opening theme song is now running through my head (I kinda doubt anyone who saw them in the theaters is reading this, wait did I say kinda?)

Alfalfa went on to be the guy who opens the natatorium floor under Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed during the Charleston competition in “It’s a Wonderful Life”.

@Durned…welp I saw ’em in the theater…in the 50’s our small Valley town had an air conditioned movie theater, with an upper tier perfect for sailing popcorn boxes. They had a kiddie matinee from 11:00 AM ’til 4:00 PM every Saturday. A quarter provided entrance to the movie, a box of popcorn, and a candy bar…no drinks cuz 200 kids and liquid isn’t a good idea.

There were always a few cartoons, mostly WB and Disney’s Ducks, shorts from the Little Rascals, Laurel and Hardy, Abbott & Costello, a weekly episode of a Space opera. The feature was whichever cowboy was in favor. It was a ripping good time…all for 25β‚΅

The space operas! Like the original Buck Rogers ones? With the space ships with smoky exhaust plumes that always rose up like smoke instead of out and back like actual thrust?

And the tin oven boxy robots with dryer vent coil appendages and the sparky ray guns! and deep sea diver spacesuits? I loved those.

Ah, simpler times.

Okay, you’re a few klicks further down the track than I am, in fact except for the price your description sounds like the ones I got from the old man about theater prices when I’d ask for a couple bucks to go to the very rare movie I saw in the theater as a kid. His price was a nickle, but i don’t remember any candy bar in his version 😁

OK, so… late to the wordle cult. I typed in the word and got 100% for 1 guess, first time playing first guess so now I’m retired on top of the world. Mrs. Peel and I will go on a world tour and sign scorecards.
