I think those are the SUBSUPERBUREAUCRATS ...

Threads like this convince me that a sense of the absurd contributes to Wordtwist success.

lol, kate. An interesting theory. I think we have no need to fear though. Every person with super in their name (Superman/woman/girl/boy) has used their power to help downtrodden, victimized people, e.g. those who stand in lineups in a government office. That said, if we ever encounter Superannoyingman/woman, I think we'd be wise to be wary of them.

You could be onto something there! However, I feel more research by a government-funded academic is needed.

I just played GOOGLE and GOOGLES. I didn't really expect them to work, but the game accepted them, even though lexic.us listed it as "word type: trademark".

I just googled "why does Wordtwist Boggle consider Google a valid word?" but it offered no insight on the matter.
