Scrabble Note

Do you know why a Q in Scrabble is worth ten whole points? Because you can rarely use it without a U, and there are only four U's in the set.

If your opponent has the Q, and if you can play this word on the top row, you got him.  Do you know the word?

              >>MUUMUU<<

To see the answer double click on it.

Remember, you don't have to know what it is, just that it is a word.

My daughter Kate has memorized all the words that use Q without a U.  Anyway, she would have saved a blank tile to use as a U.  She is VERY difficult to beat.

Somewhere there's a joke about a man in an old folks home and the word muumuu.

Donna in Texas has either never been to Hawaii, or is too young to know we wore MuuMuu's all summer long in the 60's!  ;-)

I thank you for your kind words, Dad, but I get beat in Scrabble and other word games frequently!!  AND...you forgot to tell the folks that I never could beat you until I was over 21! ~ Kate

P.S.  I don't know all the Q words...wish I did, but it DOES make a good story.

A muumuu is a Hawaiian floral dress, for those who don't know.  Fat women are often belittled for wearing them. - Karen

Scrabble is one of my favorite games and also rumicube. As for the muumuu, I just bought one and have gotten a lot of compliments on it. It is denium with light houses on it. To me it is a dress to wear when you don't really want to wear a dress, understand? LOL  Paula

That's cute, but consider the odds of your 7 tile rack containing the game's entire set of 4 U's.  On top of that, the only 2 M's in the game.   On top of that, having a way to play muumuu where it's out of reach.   And if you somehow do all that, the opponent will laugh in your face and play QAT or QAID or FAQIR or TRANQ or whatever someplace.
