im glad most of the double o words can have er added to the end
Okay, my husband and I have become addicted to this game. He just walked in while I ws lookig nad the first word he found was something a bit naughty. :)
When a 6 for 30 is exciting, it's time to go to bed.
could I have more typos in that message?

"At 12:50 am ryan said...
and im not looking for em i found em"
Oh sure, that's what they all say ;)
And of course, my first two words are two different spelling of said sex toy. "Always looking to expand my vocabulary," is what I'll say if I'm ever questioned...
mulhermujer im sorry your a gay crack addict
His gay crack addict what?
Goodmorning, Marianne - what're these sex toys? and how come I don't know about such things??
Yesterday was a much nicer grid - today I have 42 wwords for 365 points... still looking for anything over a 7.
the sex toys are dildo and dildoe
"At 01:05 am ryan said...
mulhermujer im sorry your a gay crack addict"
Speak to the ones you love with that mouth? I'll forgive you just this once 'cause you're 14. BTW, it should read, "I'm sorry you're a gay crack addict." If you're gonna try and playfully insult someone, be sure your grammar is correct. Now, back to hunting for words.....
Hold it!! The first word mulhermujer saw was a sex toy -- the first word the rest of us saw was crook, representing Nixon --- OMGosh, he was mmm's sex toy??? yick!!
Ryan are you sure you're only 14? You seem so much older :P
fuck off mulhermujer
OMGosh, I've led a sheltered life when a 14yr.old finds these before me..... are you sure -- no, don't tell me, please.
Don't give away words... it ruins it for other people.

Ryan are you sure you're only 14? You seem so much older :P"
Oh good, then it's not just me. Maybe ryan is a really seasoned 14 yo.
"At 01:15 am ryan said...
<beep> off mulhermujer"
Dude, take it easy. I was just joshing with you. I laughed when I saw your GCA post. If I insulted you, I apologize. It is not my intention to be mean to anyone ever. Take it light ;)
yes i am realy 14 im just pissed off and mulhermujer just happend to piss me off even more
and then it goes silent
Arg!! I'm stuck. 33/4.39/296. It's late, and I need fresh eyes for tomorrow. Boa noite a todos :)
69 words/ 4.49/ 717
70/804 must be lots im not seeing
85 words 4.54 919
hows everyone else doing
well i was hopen to break 1k but i ended up with 92 words/4.52/976
good night all.
and remember nothing in this world is free.
Well, I came back, thinking I could find some more words... but still only 61 for 672.
I'm going back to my book.
here we go again - won't accept cert. Has this dictionary never been taught the phrase 'dead cert' ?
Yay!! a six letter for 33 points
70 words 4.60 774
Only one 7 and I can't see any 8s :-(
The 8 letter word is a 7 letter word with an extra vowel stuck in the middle.
....and both are birds.
now I keep trying to find cormorant :S
The 8 is also a fish, by the way
The only bird I have is a four-letter one!
I want to know where uterus was in yesterdays puzzle. If there is a qu can you use the u independent of the q?
You don't need to use the u from the Q, there are three other Us in the puzzle. For 'uterus', start with the one near the bottom left (just above the E at the bottom left corner).
isnt your 8 letter wordt spelt wrongly?
I think poplier should be a word. ;) When my sister-in-law was little she said it all the time - "I like that song. It's really poplier right now." LOL!
Thanks for the bird clues, I finally got the 8 and related 7 - so that's just one 8 and two 7s I've found. Anyone got more?
I finally cracked 1000... don't think I'm going to get any more, though. 90 words 4.62 1011
Good morning, Looks like a tough one.
'toodle' isn't a word?! I know people who say variations of that word for 'good-bye' ;-)
Not surebut think it is used in the plural form - toodles
aah . . . looked it up in websters -- 'tootle' means to move along in a leisurely manner . . . no one I know enunciates the second 't' ;)
How many words are in this puzzle.
There are 117 possible words today.
Thanks Parker... how do you know?
Thanks parker313. I have 39 but only just started. This will not be my best game. How many words do you have?
I have 7 but I just got here :-P
Tamsin - There are online boggle solver thingies where you plug in the grid and they give you all the possible words. I close my eyes, scroll down real fast and get just the word count at the bottom :-P
If you look back at my scores, you *know* I'm not using it to cheat :-P
Hahaha, I trust you! Thank you Parker!
There's a hanukkah word in there ... not exactly how I would normally spell it though. 6 letters for 24 points
That's not how I would have thought to spell it either.
Just got a 7 for 36, but it's further away than I thought it would be ;)
Yeah, I think I would have swapped those last two letters. Still - thanks for the clue! :)
No, scratch that. What I meant was I would have added a letter second from the end. Can't think straight this morning!
I've learned to try the new and unusual with this dictionary ;) LOL!!
LOL Me to Parker!! its interesting to see how many times the Babble grid has been punched in also hmmm ....
The good news is that I think the Cheaters have finally got it that its a pointless exercise ND we know their Game <shrugs> noticed that we have stopped getting about same 6 peeps with the max score everyday LOL
P.S Please bring the Car round the front ;) CHEERS!! THANKS ALOT!! LMAO!!
Hmmm -I have the 4 letter bird. But I also have a 6 letter bird for 24 points. I'm wondering if this is an alternative spelling of the 7 & 8 letter birds, or if it's unrelated. Anyone got both and know?
Huh - Yeah, kinda takes all the challenge out of the game to sit there and punch in a list that's just given to you!
This puzzle has a vendetta against oodle words! No 'oodle' or 'toodle'!
And what the hell's wrong with 'toppler'?! Gah!
A follow up on the total word counts. I noticed that the high scorer for yesterday had more than the "total" so I realized that they must be pulling from different dictionaries... As we've all seen, there are some odd things that the babble dictionary has accepted!
The total yesterday was only off by 5 I believe.
parker - I just looked through the top scorer's word list and they were even missing one word that I had - 'dita' - and that would have earned them 5 more points, for the record.
The top scorer from yesterday did not have the word "eath" either.
Read the logs form yesterday. There were 336 possible words.
You're right. For some reason I was thinking 236, not 336......
I am stuck at 45, 448.
I have 3 animals :)
counting the birds? and the fish? or three others?
I have the 4 letter fish, but am still looking for the birds.
91/1013 but only have 1 7 and no 8's any clues out there
I can't find the fish or the fish/bird. :( Anyone willing to give another clue?
I also only have 1 7, but I have a 6 for 33.
Marianne -- you're rising in the rankings....
I have one bird, and one animal
I found a sex toy - that's naughty!
82 and 869 this one is tough
These 7 & 8 letter fish/birds - did people have to look them up to know that they're fish/birds, or are they commonly known words?
The 7 and 8 lettere birds are actually the same European bird with a spelling variation. The 8 letter version is the more common version....if you consider this to be common at all.
So, those of us on the other side of the pond may have more trouble with this one? ;)
Sometimes you find the birds in a pond....just not in THE pond.
I just KNEW I was supposed to join the Audubon Society.
Then it's probably not at all related to the 6 letter bird that I found, which is a hawk. I have 4 animals, but not the 7/8 letter ones yet. In alphabetical order they are:
I had the 4 letter bird all along, but was thinking of it by it's other definition!
'Toodles', I think, is always plural, a bastardization of 'tout l'heure' (we also say 'toodle-oo).
If we had another D we could enter 'toddle'.. if only.
Okay, gotta bird, an animal, a fish... but what's with this fish/bird? boggles the sleepy mind.
6 & 7 letter birds are not related. The 6 is also the name for a car model from Japan.
All this talk of birds, I keep seeing kestrel in there now...
and all I want is a chicken sandwich!
There's a horse, a primate, an insect, a few fish, and a few birds. I haven't the foggiest idea about the bird/fish except that 1 or more of the birds might eat fish.
There are also 3 cars...1 generic, 1 Japanese and 1 American, the latter 2 also have non-automotive meanings.
The mammal that I found is neither horse nor primate - it's a small marine animal.
oops...i forgot to include that mammal. And the horse and/or other equine is not from N or S America.
Don't have the horse or the primate, but it took me forever to realize that I do, indeed, have the generic car mentioned.
primate is 5 letters and horse/equine is 4
the 8 letter fish / bird - know nothing about birds, but its not a common fish, no. The benefit of being a marine biologist :P Let me try and think of a clue for it
I keep finding more obscure words meaning types of fish, but all small. 4 letters, maybe 5 for 1 or 2. Strange!
Found the extremely obscure primate by random trial and error. :)
Where is everyone?
This 7/8 fish/bird is for 36 & 45 points, correct?
88 and 961 and thats as far as I can go.
Trying to get some real work done :-P
I've got most of the animals.
the infamous bird/fish is 32 and 45.
Has anyone got more than one K word?
Since when is "mook" not a word?
I have two words beginning with K.
Thanks for the 7/8 point counts. That makes more sense, I was doing the math wrong!
i cant find any animals, or k words
I guess mook is too slang for it. But if you look mook up in the dictionary, you may find it's origin, which is a word in this puzzle. ;)
whoo broke a thousand now Im done for good really
73; 768, and no more. No animals for me either, but mushrooms! Night.
I have 3 words beginning with "k"
what continent does the 6 letter bird live on ?
I'm not a bird person, but I'd guess at least North America and Europe. It's a type of hawk.
Any hints out there for the 6 for 33?
OK, I swear you all are looking at a different puzzle than I am... I only have 33 words and have struggled for those! Too much Babbling, my eyes are blurring, can't see any more words... :P
Good luck all! Stick a fork in me, I'm DONE.
It's kinda cheeky for you to ask for a hint for the 33 pointer.
Hey - I wouldn't complain if you gave a hint....
I've run through every hawk I know of , no luck ! I have 6 letter for 30. to do with sales ?
You obviously hang out with the wrong crowd of hawks.
I'm learning more about hawks than I ever cared to know, and still haven't found it...I did make the 50 mark, though, which was pretty exciting since 38 was my top for a while today. Definitely a hard one!
If you are giving up on hawks, look for the name of a model of a Japanese car. It's the same word.
I know of 10 Japanese car names and I cannot find any of them in this puzzle.
Trying to get to 50 but still stuck at 45. I think I found a fish but can't find any of the others even with the hints.
I'm going to assume the cheeky comment was a hint and run with it. ;)
The Japanese car is not the brand name (like Pontiac) but the model name (like Grand Am). It's made by either the top Japanese car maker or the second.
I've been out of town for a week and my player ranking has moved up 80 places. who would have guessed.
Lucky you! I was out of town for a week and FELL 40 places!!!
A smile makes the 6 for 33... :-)

Found the extremely obscure primate by random trial and error. :)"
I only know of five great apes: gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, orangutans and humans. And two lesser apes: gibbons and siamangs. There is no B, G or H in the puzzle, so I am trying to figure out what obscure primate you found? Are you refering to a subspecies name?
Here is the definition from dictionary.com:
Any of several small nocturnal African primates of the genera Perodicticus and Arctocebus, having a pointed snout, large eyes and ears, and a stumplike index finger and tail.
Ohh, I'm an idiot. When I read your post, I kept seeing the word ape, not primate. Nevermind ;)
A combo of the last two clues FINALLY helped me get the 6 for 33. Now back to the 7/8 fish/bird. Sigh . . .
Got the primate now, that *is* obscure! Still working on the cheeky/smiley 6 for 33 and the 7/8 fish/bird ones.
71 words 4.55 759
OK, must give up and go to bed with 96/4.60/1063. But the real question is - Will I be able to sleep, or will I be constantly running through 7 & 8 letter combos. :-D
I am so through 84/4.50/821 Not good at all.
stuck at 50 but have found an exotic mushroom.
Got the mushroom by pure chance, and I found the primate. First time I have ever heard of that one. I have no 7's or 8's. This puzzle is a hard one for me.
54 for 571 today, this is tough!
My nephew ryan sure does have a dirty mouth, I can't believe you found the sex toys bud. I have been a little too busy today to play but I will tonight. Hope your noggin is feeling better.
Just back from a verrry long lunch, with my daughter -- too late to find much in this puzzle.
I have the mammal, a fish, a bird and with your help, the primate... I kept looking for an ape; Gawd knows what the equine thing is - I was sooo sure it was a hippo (my fave animal).. ah well, tomorrow is another day, another grid.
Closing at 66 for 707, and absolutely nothing over 7 letters.
Back in 30 minutes....
*grumbles* can't find any 7s or 8s and I don't see any birds or fish and only one car . . . think I must have the grid Christine says she gets . . . ;-P
Wahey, found one 7 at last!
Here I am searching for this exotic mushroom, and I unknowingly already had it. And to think, that time could have been spent finding a seven- or eight-letter word...
