Neither one is an acceptable word in Scrabble.

If anybody in the US wants a dose of a Scrabble-like game show, I highly recommend the UK game show Countdown.  Well, 50% Scrabble, 50% impossible math problems that the lovely Rachel solves in two seconds.  Various episodes are easily found on YouTube and the like.

/there's also the 8 Out of 10 Cats version, which is quite silly
//note that 8 Out of 10 Cats is a very silly celebrity panel show that does a crossover with Countdown from time to time

You can't use proper names in Scrabble.

JFK Shot First: Yabba Dhabi Doo


You know the difference between Dubai and Abu Dhabi?

They don't like the Flintstones in Dubai, but Abu Dhabi do.

In the lower left, the woman on the right is wearing heels that are approaching fetish territory in height.  Not sure how anybody could walk in those things.  Next to her, her friend is wearing the bluest tennis shoes I've ever seen.

Your weird obsession with footwear is duly noted.

You'll also note that all of the people seated at the tables are Caucasian.  There are three social classes in the UAE:  Emerati citizens, who are a minority in their own country but who own everything, white-collar expats, mostly from Europe, who actually run everything, and blue-collar expats, mostly from south Asia, who are basically a quasi-slave labor force that does all the heavy lifting.

The folks in the photo are possibly tourists, but more likely are European expats enjoying the white-collar UAE lifestyle.

Yeah, I didn't bother to copy the caption from the picture in the Farking Article, "Tourists dine at Dubai's Al Naseem hotel last week".  They are obviously all European or American.

Since we're playing Ultimate Scrabble with unlimited letters and proper names, then I nominate pitcher Javy Vazquez.
