I have never heard favorite pronounced as fivorite, but if it exists then 5orite is fine with me. Sixorite however is really not possible. (just a silly game allright, but what )

tsuwms word threaping (3ping smile )is a real decent word:
2. To maintain obstinately against denial or contradiction;
also, to contend or argue against (another) with
obstinacy; to chide; as, he threaped me down that it was
so. [Prov. Eng. & Scot.] --Burns.
[1913 Webster]

I finally watched the Victor Borge piece; I've always liked him, and that's a great one! He missed a few opportunities, though.

Okay, I got it now, Bran!

Besides, there are 4 Os in C4H8O4. Are we up to 6 yet? 6ten Sparre, the anit-hero of Elvira Madigan. Or, if you don't like proper names, there's always that regular column in Verbatim, 66ic!
