I have a Scrabble dictionary that allows f*ck, c*nt and sh*t among other offensive words. The newer dictionary I have from about 10 years ago omits those words. I used to play with my dad all the time and occasionally it was just appropriate to play the "naughty" words...kind of awkward but points are points

And "tits" doesn't even belong on the list! Well, actually, none of them BELONG on the list, but some of them you can understand. Tits...tits sounds like a snack! Yeah, I know...it is! But I'm not talking about your sexist snack, I'm talking about NEW! Nabisco Tits!

Cheese Tits, and Pizza Tits, and Onion Tits, and Corn Tits, and Pretzel Tits, and Tater Tits...Bet ya can't eat just one!

The java pop-up on that comic at the site says something like, "Of course, the experienced Scrabble players will see the word 'ostrich'."

yes, she was so mortified that she had to tell a major newspaper, who announced it to the world and drew attention to it.

What a pervert!

Haha, it's amusing the game chose to play the word "tits." More amusing that mommy doesn't want the kid to know what they are.

I miss the Royal Tit-Watchers' (Ornithological) Society of Britain. Their home page was always fun to link people to, but now it's one of those bastard camped domains with a bunch of ad links.

I bet she bottle fed him too. What is with parents these days. I'll answer my own question. They're idiots. It begins with not vaccinating them (which is beyond retardation), and continues with sheltering them from everything. What the fark is going to happen next? Are parents going to wrap their children in bubble wrap before they send them off to school? That whole situation is bullshiat. Kids these days are wussy enough (because today it's become tradition to reward failure) without their moronic parents sticking their noses in it.

In all fairness, it should be pointed out that, according to the article, the mother lost a game to the computer on a triple-word score use of the word 'farkers'. So she's probably just a case of sore loser. I know whenever I lose a game of, well, anything, I always try to get the manufacturer to issue me an apology.

/that xkcd made me lol

A Nintendo spokesman blamed the game's publishers, Ubisoft, for the problem, the Mail reported.

Should have been: A Nintendo spokesman blamed the English language for the problem.

Mrs Dubai has the opposite complaint. All the online scrabble games, even ones you have to buy, don't acept the really dirty words.

Apparently, there is some movie with two old ladies playing, and they spell, successively, fnck, fncker, and motherfncker. i only know about it second-hand from my father-in-law, the Anglican priest.

America, a country founded by people too uptight for the English. Somebody send that twat from TFA a one-way ticket.

A have a set of ten year old twins (nice and nephew).

Nephew: Uncle Dan, why do men like breasts?
Niece (whispering in my ear): I don't think he knows what breasts are!

Also, my brother is convinced that his children do not know what they (the children) call behind his back the "F word").

Parents can be very naive about their children.

I actually used 'cloaca' in Scrabble once with my grandma and felt a little naughty about it. Actually had to explain the word, yay me.

"A British mother says she was shocked to discover a Nintendo's Scrabble 2007 game's computer was choosing to play swear words against her 8-year-old son."

How come every popular media article about a video game is not 100% coherent?

strathmeyer: How come every popular media article about a video game is not 100% coherent?

It's because the people who get in an uprage over video game content are completely incoherent, and their disease infects reporters who come in contact with them.

That's just untrue. There are two Scrabble dictionaries that anyone serious uses: the TWL (America/Canada/Israel) and SOWPODS (everyone else). Both of them are littered with cuss words. See for yourself: Link (new window).

Playing online on Lexulous (formerly Scrabulous) you can play those words.
