You guys are killing me...
Joan, it figures that you got wiseacre
manxman, I don't think "arf" is a word unless your name is Fido, Cujo or Old Yeller
Niki, you have one too many t's on the end
On the challenge, I'm thinking "mot" isn't a word unless you're French but I've been wrong before. For this puzzle it gets the deep six.
