Grab Your Rig And Prepare To Dig!

Q may leave many reaching or send them on some queen type speeching. Maybe talk about the band who travel the land or some stupid wave that oh so many a 'sir' crave. But nothing will stop the cat as away we go with Q at my mat.

Some might consider it a cheat,
If used for a Scrabble retreat.
As it is more effective than Qi's use.
Some may even cry, abuse!

But that just makes it fun,
As it also proves the Qu rule wrong by a ton.
Just like i before e.
You humans need new rules at your sea.

So away we dig,
The hole has to be mighty big.
It usually resides in a giant litterbox,
Which is too hot for socks.

That must suck for cats there,
None to chew at their lair.
There are always toes,
As those Egyptians strike a pose.

That is where it was made too,
By Xerxes and his crew.
Ordering it to be made,
So they could control its trade.

Over half way there.
Have you guessed yet at my lair?
I know, making you use your brain.
That has to cause some strain.

Maybe you are Qasid at you sea?
Wouldn't surprise me.
But nope that isn't it.
You need to add more of what creates spit.

They originate upon high,
Helping the land below be less dry.
They run in a straight line,
Which works for the ocd of this feline.

That's right!
You have seen the light.
Or maybe not,
But a Qanat is the word behind my Q plot.

Could really increase your score and keep the water flowing forever more. See two great uses for you. One to help flush the stuff in the loo and another to bring you Scrabble fame. The Scrabble fans will cheer your name. Now back to digging your Qanat class. I will just be a slave driving little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  18. Hi! Pat Hatt, Miss Priss, and the Cat...
    I was so unfamiliar with this word called Qanat being brandished around here at your mat...

    Therefore, I took the time to look it up in a hurry by using the urban dictionary.

    Here is the result that I discovered... urban dictionary
    A totally cheap-a_ _ word to use in Scrabble and piss everyone off.
    ..ha!ha!

    It's a real word that rhyme with funnel can you guess what it is... wellll... it a underground tunnel.
