Today’s ‘Wordle’ Word Of The Day Answer #256: Wordle is back, and it’s not going anywhere until we’ve gone through the entire 2,000-word solution pool, so we’ll see what it has in store for Wednesday’s puzzle. Yesterday’s answer, RUPEE, threw a lot of non-Zelda fans and non-Indians for a loop, so maybe today’s answer will be a little easier to make up for it.
There’s still no news on when or if the New York Times will put Wordle behind its paywall, but no fad lasts forever, and by the time they do, perhaps something else will have replaced it. If that’s the case, we’ll switch over, but for now, we’ll keep Wordle-ing. I don’t think we’ve encountered any repeat words yet, but you might be able to recall some old ones to help you with some predictions.

The answer to today’s Wordle #256 is
Oh no, I’ve finally hit one that has ended my streak. This isn’t a complicated term, nor is it one I have no definition, but something about the way it was formatted made my head spin. In case you stumbled onto this page by accident, there are some spoilers ahead. This is a particularly vile remedy, according to a last-minute tip.
It’s only natural that the worst NASTY would be thrown at me. When it just hit the AN and was not even in the appropriate spot, I did AUDIO to wipe away the rest of the vowels. Then I did TANKS, which gave me a T and an N, which I completely forgot about; shame on me for the following three lines. To attempt and chop off some letters, I did LAMPS without the T or N. It took me to GASSY, and I assumed I was done with TASTY when I forgot about the N the game had already mentioned. This L was well-deserved.
It’s disappointing to break my streak, but it’s entirely my responsibility; you can never blame the game, especially when the word isn’t particularly unusual. That’s entirely my fault. Were you able to defeat this one and outperform me? I sincerely hope so.
