Does one agree that the earlier one submits his/her word, the better chance he/she will have at winning?

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2007-10-18: 01:16:00
Yes, the early word gets the worm, but by the end of the day the funniest words and sentences seem to have the best chance of flying. ~ James

Must be before my time my time my time my time, yes must be before my time, my time my time... and they all came a tumblin home...ha

I guess the song was a local thing around NYC/NJ....some do-gooder thought we had too many pedestrian deaths or something.
