The marvellous Neil Innes answered with this word yesterday with a Tour de France question on Christmas University Challenge.  I thought well I be buggered!

Wow! Thanks for the information, rogue-mother, Calilasseia and Alan W.  There was just something about that word that piqued my interest.  I apologise for my narrow-mindedness; I'm normally quite open-minded when it comes to lexicology: It's such a complex and ever-evolving behemoth of a subject that it's practically organic!  I won't be forgetting metoo in a hurry; I wish I could say the same for every other unusual word out there.

What's up with this rather odd "metoo" word?  I entered it in the Collins Dictionary/Scrabble Word finder and it didn't recognise it.  If it's not Scrabble worthy then it's not a word to be taken seriously (for now, anyway).

Happy Easter folks!

Here's an excluded word I came across:

miro (also miro tree)
noun (pl.miros)
An evergreen coniferous New Zealand tree which yields useful timber.

Cheers me dears!

Hia folks, thank you for your kind greetings!  Unfortunately I do not have two brains in my possession, but I am possessed by two dysfuctional hemispheres  :-R

I do own a castle though, but it's only a model.  I keep it in my secret apartment along with my pointy birds located at Dillmans Grove.

Gav :D

Hello everybody  :D

I came across this interesting word 'unica', which wasn't recognised in this standard puzzle.  It's the plural form of unicum, meaning a unique example or specimen (from Latin 'unicus' as in 'unique').
