I'm glad you aren't ambivalent about which table cloths to use. No flaxuating, unless you're in Hempstead, where the tablecloths might make you act funny.

Hey all! Love this game, let's get it going again.

OK this one's like shooting fish in a barrel... because the corresponding English word derives from French 'se tromper' (to make a mistake) with connotations of wrong, cheat, even snake-oil salesmen, who would blow a trumpet to attract passersby to their wares Big Grin

TRUMPETS Donald's offspring
STRUMPET Donald's wife

...of course, "trumped up" and "trumpery" don't even need a joke!

public dump: defecating in the street

I thought of this after reading about the TV reporter who needed relief during a shoot. So he walked into a nearby yard, dropped his drawers and had at it. He got arrested for public defecation. Had he rung the doorbell of the house, the owner said she would have let him use her toilet.

trump: to win by playing a card from the trump (higher value) suit, but now colloquially also to win by having more money

overtrump: to win by playing a higher value card from the trump (higher value) suit, but now colloquially also to win by having more money than Donald

undertrump: to play a lower value card from the trump (higher value) suit than one already played, but now colloquially also to compete against Donald knowing you can't win because he has more money, but you play the game anyway because it's good for PR and you have got so much money anyway, you don't really care if he beats you or not

no trumps: a game in which there is no higher value suit, or now colloquially a game in which you don't have to compete with Donald

trumpet: as a verb, to proclaim widely or loudly, or now colloquially to sing your own praises as widely and loudly as Donald does

trumpery: the ritual foolery displayed by Donald

All of you who live outside the U.S. must think we are crazy. While you know Trump (how could you help it?), you likely don't even know much about Bernie Sanders, the socialist who is giving Hillary Clinton a run for her money. Oy vey. Roll Eyes
