If you have an interesting use of the Wildcard function at FindForward, please show us here.

findforward.com/?t=wildcard

Examples: I like to drink *
Or: Bush is *
and so on.

Corni, actually you need to use the "Wildcard" search type from the menu. Like this:

findforward.com/?q=why+is+*+cr ...

Which returns the following:

why is * crazy

He –> 4.75% (19 of 400)
Everyone –> 3% (12 of 400)
She –> 2% (8 of 400)
Everybody –> 1.25% (5 of 400)
Shyla –> 1% (4 of 400)

(Quotes are not needed on this Wildcard query...)
