* Also happens when playing with foreign sets. Even if the alphabets shared are exactly the same, the distribution of letters will make playing by any realistic means incredibly difficult - see also; Welsh, and only one Y in English Scrabble sets.

** [[http://digg.com/video/colbert-sounds-off-on-new-scrabble-words-gets-trounced-by-an-actual-child He challenged a young boy called Brandon to a Scrabble game]] and insisted that BURGLKAF was a word. ("Burglkaf's not a word". "Oh, really, cos you just used it in a sentence, smart guy!"). In the next episode, he jumps over BURGLKAF in the opening credits.

* Since online Scrabble-alikes such as Words With Friends run on the honor system-- neither player can be sure that the other isn't using one of any number of web sites that will generate a high-scoring Scrabble word for a given combination of letters-- matches between unscrupulous players tend to devolve into this, with both players tossing out technically [[PerfectlyCromulentWord cromulent]] but ridiculously obscure and arcane words. The strategy becomes more about blocking your opponent's access to bonus tiles than leveraging a good vocabulary.

** Inverted in the same episode, where Homer complains of having a bad set of tiles -- that spell out "oxidize." Oddly, unlike many examples, combining both these "words" into a single game is still entirely possible with the rarity of certain letters.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bo0ncg-2zPY In an NBA on ESPN commercial]], Shaquille O'Neal is dominating a game of Scrabble. The (then) Phoenix Suns center baffles NBA analysts Stuart Scott and Mike Breen with words like "Shaqtastic" and "Shaqtus". The presence of so many Q's is [[LampshadeHanging challenged by the anchors]]. Additional humor in that he breaks almost every rule. Multiple turns in a row, words that aren't actually connected to each other, incomplete "words", and words that are far too long to be played at once. The shot of the game board doubles as a FreezeFrameBonus.
