    Got it on the last attempt, and only chose the word out of no other options existing. In my head, I was sifting through the possibilities, and hit the stupid wall. “My last guess was ‘candy’, and none of the remaining letters make any sense. Surely, it isn’t ‘canny’, as in ‘can-ish’...To hell with it; give it a shot. Holy shit, that worked!”

    Never even registered, that it was uncanny without the -un prefix. Four decades of life, without ever encountering the word ‘canny’ on its own, or even having to ponder its existence. Oh well, Big Gulps, huh? Alright.

    If you had the "D" available :quagmire: and claim you chose Canny before Candy, you cheated.

    Edit: looks like only other option was carny and I honestly thought that was spelled carnie. One of those words I’ve heard but never seen written.

    As I log more and more days in Heardle, I find more often than not I get them in either 1 sec. or I never get them cause I've never heard the song and don't recognize the singers voice (if there is one in the clip).

    It's like the exact opposite of Wordle which I get almost exclusively in 3, 4, or 5 and occasionally 2.

    WTF. I’ve only heard of uncanny. Was smug as fuck when i typed candy, only to stare at my phone like an idiot for about 5 seconds when it was incorrect.

    Got the feeling there's a nasty game around the corner - the last week or so of words has been pretty comfortable. Even CANNY was pretty stress free for some reason. :ohdear:

    I think I’m developing “quordle brain” - thinking of the third and fourth most common words that will fit instead of the most common…

    That was the one of those four that bothered me most. Is it slang for puke? Is it a proper name? Is there a third definition that I don’t know?
