This was the daily trivia question this morning on a local radio station. Took all morning for the right answer to come up. Thought it would be fun to throw up on the Planet and see how long before someone can guess it.

I'll be gone for a while but will check in later. First person to get it right gets rep.

I could, I could also let it go on at least as long as it did on the radio station.


I will give you this hint...

When I did the [ctrl f] the first 3 leters of the word were all that came up in the guesses so far.;)

I did a seach using the correct spelling of the word and it has been used 263 times since the last server dump. That, of course does not count the number of times the word was used in a misspelled variant.

Hey dummies: It won't be a word that is used incorrectly, the search engine has no way to tell if you meant they're, their, there.

As for the word, I have no friggin' clue.

Just curious, did you have a lucky guess, find it on the net or hear the quiz question yourself?

Well, I had heard Kournikova before as the most misspelled name on the Internet, so I guessed that first. Then I thought, what do most people search for when using these things? And I came up with restaurant, because it is a toughy and that's something people look up often. So I guess it would be an educated guess?
