DEPOT!

Today’s Wordle answer is DEPOT. A depot is a place where you keep large quantities of boring essentials such as food, parcels, dynamite, etc. Or sometimes, it’s a big garage where buses, coaches, trams and the like are parked up. In any sorta depot you’ll find salt of the Earth types with pencils behind their ears, probably eating a good ol’ bag of the ol’ fish and the chips, with a bit of ‘ow’s yer father.

We got this one in four with the usual ALIEN/SHOUT one-two punch, then we tried DEMOB as it has most of the identified letters, and we were tired. 

After that, why, we was daaaaahn the blessed DEPOT so we was mister, with a pint of bitter and a one-way ticket to the good ol’ Lambeth Walk, to see the ‘Ammers as I do live and breathe. Evenin’ all. 

Now take this shilling and run along.

Duncan has been writing about tech for almost 15 years and fitness ever since he became middle aged and realised he could no longer rely solely on his boyish good looks. He used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
Pre-lockdown Duncan was widely regarded as the best-dressed man ever to work for T3 – admittedly not saying much. Post-lockdown he is looking forward to wearing clothes other than shorts and hoodies again very soon, assuming he can still fit into them. He currently writes about cycling, fitness tech that isn’t too heavy, and all things kitchen and home related.
