RIP Words With Pirates

I play a lot of Scrabble—even if it’s the ripoff called Words With Friends.

So you can imagine a few people thought I would be interested in the news yesterday that Scrabble has added two new words using the letter “Q” to the lexicon. One of them, “FIQH,” has a religious meaning. Via Wired:

An expansion of Islamic sharia law, based directly on the Koran and Sunnah. Scrabble score: 19.

I’m not really sure how to use that in a sentence, but fortunately I won’t have to. Come challenge me on Words With Friends. Username: Bradberg.
