Wordy Guy III



OK kids, you know the rules...let the play begin. Tomorrow I'll post the answer and the winner. Heck, I know, you'll all have checked the dictionary by then, but I'll make it official.

“mendicant”

A. Ineffective

B. A beggar

C. Characterized by deception or dishonesty

RESULTS

So am I to believe that all three of you chose correctly without "research"? WELL, it's true, at least the part about choosing correctly. Congratulations to you smart people.

B!!!!!!

I'm going with the photosmith and by some weird deductive reasoning. I figure if A and C are both qualities that pertain to most politicians and B does not, I'm going with B.

One of these things is not like the others...you know the song.

I think it is B....for all the wrong reasons.....now I will do the research

I may just well up with tears; three posts in just two hours!

I will post the correct answer after lunch, to give some of the "less faitful" readers a fighting chance.

Thank you, thank you all (3)!

Oh ye of little faith...I did not research the answer. In fact, I followed my own, oddball logic (and the photosmith's pick). Cheat? I think not! Well, maybe sort of.

Tex, casting aspersions is not my intent; i'd rather be casting soft plastic lures to flat fish, intently.

I will believe you, until one of my spies catches you doing something un-American.

Just remember, I trust you all.

I'm just a good guesser...aint' I aAron...write a story about that (those) time(s) and...I 'trust' you all too. ;)
