We Should All Be Ashamed That Draw Something Players Don't Know What Metroids Look Like

Zynga's acquisition of OMGPOP today revealed some other interesting tidbits of news. Did you know, for instance, that "starfish" is one of the most popular words drawn in Draw Something? I have never even encountered the word myself. True story.

Amongst the least guessed words is "pounce." I've always successfully gone with the cat pounce: two cats, one with an arched back leaping on top of the second, sleepy cat. Hasn't failed yet.

Look below for some more fun facts about Draw Something as announced today by Zynga.

Note: I'm not sure what a "god tornado" is or how to draw it, but I'll venture a guess that it's a typo.
