I'll cherish the memory of searching in vain for a five word answer, three letters a piece.

John Fanning, Shawn Fanning, and Sean Parker.

(The pirates who created Napster. I'm guessing Whirly misspelled Shawn as Shaun.)

Mulligan? Schmulligan! I want my money. The rejected W doesn't materially affect the puzzle 'cause Shawn and Shaun are commonly interchangeable. Just ask Google. If you search for one or the other, then you'll get results for both. If I could see through that tiny little mistake, then you guys coulda too.

take a look at the outcome of the last puzzle.

(if you're not 100% familiar with the name shawn fanning then having w rejected totally effects the outcome)

Umm, nice try. The last puzzle was missing a whole freakin' word. Big difference.

(If I gave you the missing W, and two more hours by yourself, then you still wouldn't have solved this puzzle.)
