Lovecraft once wrote that "the most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents." Pshaw, I say! There are deep waters out there that need to be explored. Let's make a case in point. You want to win a $25.00 DDG Gift Certificate. You want to gain enduring fame for your love of words. You are being told that Wanted, Killer, Heartless, Unbelievable, Flawless, Wicked, Killer, and Pretty Little Liars are the eight titles of a book series. So how do all these things correlate in a positive way? Well, all you need to do is enter our PLL Word Game Contest. To enter just compose a single complete sentence using all eight titles in the Pretty Little Liars series. Here's a sample sentence to get you started. Please note though that there are no restrictions as to theme for the contest.

It was a flawless sunset, and Amanda, even if she had wanted to, was not heartless enough to spoil it for Nate, not because it would have been wicked, nor because he was a killer boyfriend, I mean it was unbelievable that they were going out together, but because it truly was a perfect sunset and Amanda was just not willing to be counted among the pretty little liars on such a beautiful evening.

The winning sentence will receive a 25.00 gift certificate and enduring fame. Enter the contest by clicking here. May the best sentence win!
