Bee wins the prize in yesterday's no-prize contest

Empress Bee was the first to correctly respond that dihydrogen monoxide is just a roundabout way of saying "water."

Perhaps just as important, no one got the answer wrong --

So: A hearty handshake and virtual pat on the back goes out across the ether to the Empress Bee. And thanks also to Katherine, Ladeedah, Barb, and Fran for participating. And give extra credit points to Fran for explaining the answer... and for revealing how she 'pranks' (the young people have turned this into a verb) her grandchildren by making up stories that play on their gullibility... then 'fessing up... and thereby teaching the grandkids to be less gullible.
