In the last issue our uncoordinated typing fingers invented a new word: “bbut”. Apparently Prairie Dog readers don’t like our fingers inventing clever new words because a bunch of you took exception to the aforementioned spectacle of free-form fingering. Well FINE. Be that way.
We grudgingly awarded $10 and a “smurf-sized” Typo Wiener T-shirt to “bbut” objector Eleni Gardikiotis.
Eleni is “a research coordinator by day and a jazz musician by night” who sings with the group Uptown Jazz at Bushwakker on the last Monday of every month. She spent her prize money on delicious beer minutes after collecting it, so that’s okay. I guess.
