Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

I am a mean scrabble player, but it’s not the long and weird words that will make you feel the pain, it’s the 2 and 3 letter words.

A kindred spirit! Qi, qat, xi, xu, za, jo! Those will kill you.
