I recently read a book, Send for Me, by Lauren Fox. This is about Jews during WWII both in Germany and America. I thought is was well written and interesting.
There was one quote early on in the book that sort of stopped my in my tracks:
Germans! Defend Yourselves! Do not buy from JewsLauren Fox, Send for Me
Ready for the game?
_____________! Defend yourselves! Do not buy from _____________.
I have installed a wheel here, with some other words. I’m going to spin the wheel and get some words to fill in these blanks…

Americans! defend yourselves. Do not buy from _____________
I’ll dispense the with the sound effects….
Americans! defend yourselves. Do not buy from Republicans
One more spin:
Americans! Defend yourselves! Do not buy from Democrats
See what a fun game!
Here are the rules if you want to play at home:
- You are not allowed to use the word racist, homophobe, pedophile or anything that the REASONABLE person would agree is a bad thing
- You are not allowed to use special interests. I understand that someone with a special interest might say it’s important, for this version of the game we will say that there are too many sides to each of these issues and is we started to go down this road, we would never buy anything from anyone- (true story- there is an indie bookstore in NYC that was in danger of closing so a cry began to save it. Then people started complaining that the owner of the bookstore owns stock in Amazon so she is apparently anti small local business, so a counter argument rang out that no one should shop at the store and it should close- seriously- this is really happening, so you understand my rule)
Did you find any good words to substitute on your home wheel?
How many wins do we have if we play the substitution game?
