woman?

Yes!!! On the record-setting 157th post of the competition ...

Nikyma closes out the competition with [9]!

And almost gets to be on top of the competition, so to speak.

Final tally:

Itachi-san - 7

Nikyma - 6

LIS - 3

Vishmi - 3

akaslickster - 1

Great job everyone!

Back in WWII days women joined the war effort as SPARS WAC WASP and WAVES.

Here's evidence.

WAVES i looked but dismissed cos its not a word.

it is an acronym - surely that is a bit of a swerve of the rules - a tad miffed, LIS

I feel for you man ... look at the fame and glory you could have received ;)

sometimes you have to just give yourself a chance and go for it.

In 157 posts there were some wild ideas tried.

I'm guessing that the solver was only trying to match "cleaning" by guessing "woman".

But you had both words covered and dismissed it cos you thought acronyms aren't words.

Had you forgotten about laser, sonar, snafu, f***, wasp, etc.? :(

Quick definitions (wave)

# noun: a member of the women's reserve of the United States Navy;

originally organized during World War II but now no longer a separate branch

Quick definitions (acronym)

noun: a word formed from the initial letters of a multi-word name.

I had a different reason for not trying "woman", though I'm not miffed B)) I saw those Navy definitions too and just figured bonanova had higher standards for women than just cleaning objects :P Lesson learned.

Hehehehehe, too funny. :lol: Now if the puzzle had been by largeneal..... :D

Well i am informed by my daughter that these things become common usage and enter dictionaries as both acronym and word, though the reference I used was an acronym. Maybe I just don't learn my lesson that it's a good idea to put in every answer, though I would rather choose something cos it fits better.

ps Itachi-san, bonanova is human and still has a little testosterone left I believe.

edit to add, and it does not exist anymore either - less miffed than before though!
