Editorial Cartoon: Wordle thoughts

It’s 11:59 PM, 5 seconds til midnight, 4, 3, 2, 1 and finally it’s 12:00 AM. All people, teenagers and adults alike, wake up and stare at five empty boxes. Endless possibilities of words, yet one combination is correct. Six tries, that’s it. What word to start with, IRATE? CRANE? ADIEU? AUDIO? What strategy to employ? These are the thoughts trolling the minds of many at 12:00 AM, because 12:00 AM no longer means a new day, but a new Wordle word to guess. Wordle has infiltrated and conquered the minds of many and has become everyone’s first and last thought of the day.
