Word of the day winner
Good morning all

thanks for playing.

the word yesterday was: USUFRUCTUARY
and after reading through some very funny answers indeed this is the winning entry;

In the land of Fruitasia, which is adjacent to our world and we visit it quite frequently (even though we are unaware of it), the fruit magistrates have thought long and hard what to do with the half eaten fruit we humans sometimes leave lying around. They were having lots of complaints from fruit psychiatrists about many cases of post-eating depression and traumatic stress in half-eaten apples, half-chewed-up walnuts, etc. we left to rot somewhere on bus stops, tossed on the road (even through the windows of running cars while driving), etc. So the fruit magistrates passed a law by which they build a special fruit garden called USUFRUCTUARY which was made a sanctuary for the depressed and half-eaten fruits of Fruitasia, something like a wonderful home for the seniour citizens we have, but in the open.        
Congratulations ANITA, you are going to choose the last word of the day of 2010
