Katie Emig just nabbed her 5th Wordner win, putting her within reach of the all-time champion, Clint Shearer. She recently took some time to sit down with Wilbur D. Clownfish and answer a few questions.
WILBUR: Thanks for joining us today, Katie. You work in fashion, correct? Would you mind telling us a little bit about the…ahh…outfit you are wearing?
KATIE: You mean these old pajamas riddled with holes? I don’t think your fans want to hear about that. But earlier today I was wearing some furry white clogs, which I like to wear around town.
WILBUR: You are known as one of our most loyal Wordner fans. What keeps you coming back every day to play again?
KATIE: I like to see the creative phrases that other fans are posting. Whether it’s something related to current events or just a funny combination of words, I’m inspired by the way other players interpret the Wordner. OH and I love the illustrations that you post along with the win!
WILBUR: Well, thanks! I enjoy making those. You have also had the opportunity to play Wordner in person with a group of friends. Would you mind telling us about how that compares to playing on Facebook?
KATIE: I don’t know if you’ll believe it, but it’s even more fun! Once the energy of the group gets going, there are recurring jokes that become more and more ridiculous as the game goes on. The best part is when you have to read all of the responses to the group and you can’t make it through without laughing. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time!!
WILBUR: Think fast! I was sleepwalking last night and ended up… (Frog, Brown, Laugh).
KATIE: …in Froggy Hollow, croaking out my favorite tunes.
WILBUR: Wow. Your creative abilities are simply astounding! Before we let you go, do you have any tips for the other Wordner fans out there?
KATIE: Don’t focus on winning, just have fun with it. And definitely play in person, when you have your friends over.
