Funtime Open Thread: 8/2

Hello lovelies!  I have been slightly obsessed with Words With Friends lately, which is an iPhone Scrabble-like app for those who don’t play, and so I have also been slightly obsessed with weird words. Along with my growing arsenal of two-letter words with high point-values (hello qi, ka, and jo), I found a list of country names that are legal on the Scrabble board. All of the following countries are not necessarily proper nouns. Do you know what they mean when you take away their capitals?

  1. Chile
  2. China
  3. Turkey
  4. Chad
  5. Panama
  6. Japan
  7. Brazil
  8. Guinea
  9. Morocco
  10. Tonga

And now, for something completely different, feel free to dance your way through the open thread.

Thanks to the good folks at Sporcle for the trivia idea :)
