World Scrabble Champs, Demand For Players To Be Stripped Searched!

Recommended Posts

In a weekend filled with sporting controversy, it was a missing letter 'G' that threatened to set the Scrabble World Championship on fire this weekend, as wordsmiths from around the world gathered in Warsaw to do battle.

At the event's opening on Saturday, a Thai player demanded England's Ed Martin be taken to the toilet and strip-searched to prove he had not hidden a 'G' tile that mysteriously went missing during their game. The judges ruled in Mr Martin's favour, sparing him the indignity of a search and seeing a tight defeat turned into victory by a single buttock-clenching point.

Ultimately, Scrabble's most controversial incident since one player accused another of eating a tile, did nothing to alter the competition's result. The trophy and $20,000 (£12,700) prize was claimed yesterday by New Zealander Nigel Richards, who assured his 3-2 win over Australian Andrew Fisher by taking 95 points with "omnified" – to have rendered something universal.

:lol::lol:

Surely to god the smell might have given it away if it was used????
