What’s in a Name?


Donald Trump just announ-

Oh, excuse me.

President Donald Trump (hahaha…I’m still getting a kick) just announced that he is nominating Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.  By all accounts he is a conservative jurist who will apply the law with restraint and blah blah blah blah.

Life. Check.  Guns.  Check.  Religious freedom.  Check.

Moving right along…

No, but seriously, if you want substantive analysis go ask somebody else.

We have more important work to do, like turning Neil Gorsuch into a word game.

Here’s how it works.  There are over 1,000 words (three letters or longer) that can be made from the letters in the name Neil Gorsuch.  Everyone gets a piece of paper, writes “NEIL GORSUCH” at the top, and it’s off to the races.  Three points for every 3-letter word, four points for every 4-letter word, and so forth.  Whoever has the most points when the buzzer goes off (I don’t know, five minutes?) wins the game.

And for extra dork fun, award bonus points for multiple word phrases.  To list but a few examples:

Gin sloucher

Lego urchins

Chlorine Gus

Hug in closer

Sluring echo

Guns or Chile

Anyway, you get the idea.  So go crazy.

And let’s get this guy confirmed.

    Ok, all out of ideas. Hopefully this practice will give me the edge to beat my wife in Bananagrams tonight.
