(Wikipedia): Call My Bluff was a long-running British game show between two teams
of three celebrity contestants. The point of the game is for the teams to take it in
turn to provide three definitions of an obscure word, only one of which is correct.
The other team then has to guess which is the correct definition, the other two
being "bluffs".

proper communication which underpin the English language.
Among the rst things we forget when we leave school are the rules of grammar — the
infuriating and extremely irritating rules rendered completely unnecessary in a world in whichtexting seems to be the most popular form of communication and where most sentiments canbe adequately conveyed by acronyms, abbreviations, and the ubiquitous emoticon.
