Well it’s April Fools’ day. Every April Fools I feel like King Arthur in Monty Python and the Holy Grail when they get to Camelot and see all the ridiculous knights singing and dancing. “On second thought, let’s not go to Camelot. It’s a silly place.”

This is how I feel about April Fools’. It’s a silly day. You can’t trust half the headlines you read, though I suppose that’s the case on any given day, just worse on April 1st. Admittedly, sometimes the jokes can be funny, but a lot of them aren’t. Maybe I just need a day to be grouchy about. I love Christmas. Some people hate it and they get to be grumpy about December 25th. Well I get to be the April 1st curmudgeon.

Then again, how will you even know if I’m telling the truth?

Alright, let’s Wordle.

How To Solve Today’s Wordle

The Hint: Palm.

The Clue: Today’s Wordle has many more consonants than vowels.

Okay, spoilers below!




The Answer:

Wordle Analysis

Every day I check Wordle Bot to see how I did. You can check your Wordles with Wordle Bot right here.

Kind of a tricky word today. I guessed prank for obvious reasons and was pleasantly surprised to get two green boxes. I though irony might be a fitting answer for April 1st and that gave me a third green box but left me with too many choices. One of these was wrong, which I also thought might be a fitting “theme” word for the day. I was wrong. With a few words remaining, I picked frond because front was also in there and I figured I’d at least eliminate a couple at the same time. Lucky for me, frond was the Wordle!

Today’s Wordle Etymology

The word “frond” has its roots in botanical terminology, used to describe the leaf or leaf-like part of a palm, fern, or similar plant. The etymology of “frond” traces back to the Latin word “frons,” which means “leaf” or “foliage.” Over time, “frons” evolved into “frond” in English, specifically referring to the large, divided leaves of ferns and palms, capturing the essence of their expansive, leafy appearance. This evolution from Latin into the English language underscores the scientific and descriptive origins of the term, reflecting the detailed study and classification of plants that has occurred over centuries.
