this is only true for the english speaking world....
Originally posted by kevcvs57 Are you sure there are three 'O's in Ooops I thought it only had two, thus making it an anagram of 'Poos' thus associating it with all the other colloquialism's for crap as in 'crap/poo I've started another crappy/pooey word association game'.
It can have as many as four o's. Depending on how heavy or light the exclamation is. Yep, up to four. But no more. State law.

There should be one word association game -- the original WAG, the one we've come to know and love.
All the others, the A-Z, Z-A, last-letter-first clones and satirical copycats, should be dispatched forthwith.
Spam can serve a useful purpose, if kept within reasonable limits.
