A little WCT action for the folks who are still putting off doing their taxes.

KTHXBAI is one word, right?

Saw Jeph's tweet (jephjacques: AAAAH! AAAH AAAAAAH AAAAAAH!!! ), and can't help wondering if he watched Shrek the Third over the weekend (as I did). Not the best of the series, but the part where Snow White does Robert Plant's screams from "Immigrant Song" as a battle cry is pretty funny.

I voted DAAAAANG, because it is so very versatile.  In one tone it can be, "that is one attractive person that just walked by."  Or, it can be a "dude, you really messed that one up."  Or, "Oh man, that's a bummer."

Best one word sentence? For me it has to be: (duě).  :-D  It is so versatile, meaning yes, right, correct, indeed, OK, and a whole bunch of other things depending on the context.

Marten is such a drama-queen.

Bad Faye!

I don't normally ride Dora's case, but in this instance, I feel compelled to. If there were such a thing as a secret collection at the Smif Library, and Marten had told, say, Hanners, about it but not Dora, Dora would anally excrete a very insecure ceramic rectangular solid when she found out. For this, she deserves melodrama.

Chose "Other".  The sentence is "You."

Depending on tone, it can be either pants-soilingly terrifying or intensely arousing.  Probably not both at once.

Your mileage may vary.

The melodrama is now squarely on the other foot. How does it feel, Dora?  I like Dora, but she does tend toward melodrama when she is on the other side of these situations.

if something simply does not come up in conversation, then unless there is a conceivable scenario in which it will become important, being expected to go out of your way to explain it is ridiculous.

Dale had stuff to do, obviously.  Maybe people like him because he never overstays his welcome.   :wink:

Marten seems to be faking/overplaying the drama for giggles.  I mean, he's hurt, but not THAT hurt.  And suddenly I want to see him singing Morrissey at karaoke.

Should I worry that so many people apparently know what genital punches feel like?

I'm not sure it's worrisome so much as telling.

Which could be taken as poking fun at Dora's insecurities. Which Dora might not take well.

"Inconscheivable" may be iconic, but it has such limited usage.  

"Shit" is pretty good, but it suffers the same fate as "Fuck", "Damn", and even "Daaaaannng", it's only so flexible because it's not being used literally (what's the literal meaning of Dang, anyway?).  

I think Reiver's "YOU" has a lot of merit - with the right inflection it can mean so many different things!  I've used it to great effect myself for everything from love to exasperation to intimations of doom.  

I especially like the last one.

I'd have voted "other" and opted for "forty-two" if I didn't doubt it counts as only one word.

Forty-two is a compound noun: two nouns bound together to name a person, place, thing, or, in this case, an abstract idea. Whether that counts as a single word in your book depends, I suppose, on the book.

My only thing is that I remember when Dora went nuts over Marten getting his hair cut, while she later admitted how ridiculous it was I can see Marten feeling a bit irked/betrayed. That or he might just be playing it up because he often doesn't protest so when he does he likes to add a dose of ham.
