Our pals over at Rock For Kids, an organization that provides free music education for children in need, frequently hold auctions to raise money for their noble cause. (A few years ago, a commenter paid $500 to do a Taste Test with us. Good on ya, partdavid.) Now, several A.V. Clubbers have stepped up to the virtual plate to challenge you, two-syllable Tim or no-words Nancy, to some Words With Friends. You can bid on the privilege over at eBay, and there are individual links below. Whoever gets me will get a bargain, as I will play you constantly, and not just one game, but forever. I will also crush you with words like "minikin" and "xi." I can't speak for my co-workers, because they're all too scared to play me. Bid below. Do it for the kids.
