Our first Swamp Talk Slam was a huge success! Three teams competed fiercely for the longest words and highest scores. Team “The Moms” played USURERS — the plural form of usurer, someone who lends money and charges interest, especially at an exorbitant or unlawful rate. Perhaps they were thinking of college tuition, or perhaps they are particularly adept at using the -ER suffix. Or both. (49 points)
Team “Something Witty” ended up winning two bouts, but “The Moms” and “Old Hat” were hot on their tails. We’ll slam again next Friday, July 29, at 5 p.m., Downstairs at the Savoy.
