I don't know. Spy? Spyware? Cheeseburger? License?
We need a clue.

The early bird gets the worm usually, but I would wait for a clue before attempting.

Later tonight at 8:00pm EST, I will post the contest clues

Thank you all, and good luck!

The first topic has been updated to include the clues for the secret word.

To clarify a few things, you are allowed to post more than one guess, however we ask that you do not flood the topic with 2 or more guesses in a row.

Good luck everyone!
