Wordplay Wednesday (March 16, 2016)

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Wordplay Wednesday (March 16, 2016)

With Nancy Reagan’s funeral last week and the most entertaining/existentially terrifying primary season in recent memory going on around us, I thought it was a good time for this Wordplay Wednesday.

Take the three uncontroversially greatest, most universally beloved presidents of modern times. That’s right, I’m talking about Nixon, Reagan, and Obama. Can you think of a common English word that has these three strings of letters, in consecutive order, hidden inside the word?

You're inviting the Jeopardy! jokes with that last set of initials, but I'll try to behave.
