Good word chris. I have been giftmiffed a few times. Hey, does anyone know what the official title will be for the game winner? They should be able to come up with a good title. How about adding "VbD" to the playername since the winner should be awarded a "Doctorate in Verbotomy".

The winner (mother?) will be drunk with the power, so how about "Verbloto"?

- 2006-11-24: 11:48:00
Mother drunk?? Never!!! (heavy sarcasm)
