“I’d like to buy a vowel”

From Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish:

“Everybody in the family played Scrabble and took great pride in hoarding Ks and Qs and slapping them down in long, fancy words on triple-letter scores.” — Going Rogue, p. 12.

Any good Scrabble player knows it’s impossible to “hoard” Ks or Qs, as there is only one of each in a set of tiles. As a fellow Scrabble player said, “Perhaps she was thinking she was playing Poker, where hoarding Kings and Queens might be beneficial?”

First off, I cannot imagine, even for a moment, Mooselini playing Scrabble. It is so unlikely that I think it is safe to say it didn’t happen.

Secondly, the only word with Q that she is likely to know is Quit.

Lastly, she would need three Ks.

    Long, fancy words: “DQ,” “KFC.” Play the words you KNOW or someone can challenge and you get your clock cleaned.
