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.

November 17, THERE, 4/6

GRAVY SEASON IS at hand, and starting with STOCK got a yellow T. Add some new consonants and vowels, nice common ones, for TREAD. Green T, yellow R, green E—the front of the word had to be THE-, but where did the R go? One spot from the end, for THERE, or all the way at the end, for THEIR? THEIR seemed more perverse; had Wordle ever landed on a possessive pronoun before? I couldn't resist trying it. Nope. Gray I, yellow R. Not in that place, but in the other place.

The Wordle Postgame Report will be posted semi-regularly on the website of the Indignity newsletter, and on Popula.
