The Sartiglia is an equestrian tournament of ancient origins, where masked knights on horseback try to pass a star with a sword, galopping along the track. The traditional tournament is celebrated every year on the last Sunday and Tuesday of carnival. (Photo by Emmanuele Contini/NurPhoto via Getty Images)

December 7, JOUST, 4/6

I SAW THE date on my phone and I played PEARL. Wordle responded with five gray squares. So much for Wordle's Thanksgiving foray into theme words on special occasions. I tried to stick with the theme with SHOCK and got only a yellow S and O. The possibility of ZEROS buzzed across my mind but the E and the R were gone, and it was a plural, so: enough. Wordle was clearly trying to FOIST something else on me. Green O, green S, green T. JOUST, then. My head-to-head battle with the Wordle was done.

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!
