unfounded under tragic
unbound papers and text-based

It’s relatively easy to replace black with white, odd with even, red with green. But what is the opposite of “of?” The opposite of “caped?” This one was a lot of fun, and has, dare I say, potential. And I learned a new word. “Keeg” is the antonym of “geek,” as in, “My dad, you know, he’s such a keeg he can’t even answer a phone call on his smart phone.”
