Wordle Postgame Report, December 14
Call girl in love boat allegations Virginia Perger today at a secret location. Miss Perger asked for $200 - "I'm a working girl.” Miss. Virginia Perger has been moonlighting as a media star. But her fees haven't been far out of line with what she receives for her USUAL job. That's the story behind the story, according to the journalist who broke the love boat scandal, Mr. David Halpin. He said the prostitute was paid $200 for an initial interview and not much more than $1,000 for the hours she spent telling her story to the Sunday Telegraph. May 09, 1985.

The Wordle Postgame Report is a brief analysis of a game of Wordle, the five-letter-word guessing game now owned by the New York Times. If you do not play Wordle, Indignity encourages you to please skip this item. The existence of the Wordle Postgame Report does not constitute an endorsement of playing Wordle, not playing Wordle, or of the New York Times.

December 14, USUAL, 4/6

LOOKING FOR MORE variance, as an excuse for taking the first word that came to mind, I started with FRUIT and got a green U in the middle. Was the U the first vowel after a consonant combination or the second in a pair of vowels? I tried the latter with POUCH, and the grid stayed gray on both sides. Consonants, then? SLUNG got a yellow S and L. Some third kind of structure, apparently. And with consonant selection getting thin, it was time for some more vowels. USUAL? All green in the fourth row, my most common Wordle outcome.

The Wordle Postgame Report will be posted semi-regularly on the website of the Indignity newsletter, and on Popula, which we encourage you to support. Thank you for reading!
