    Hilary Duff's Husband, Matthew Koma, Called Her Out For Using A Fake Word In Bananagrams And I'm Cackling

    "UL is not a word…"

    During this period of social distancing, many people have really turned to puzzles and board games to fill their days — and that includes Hilary Duff and her husband, Matthew Koma.

    Yesterday, Hilary and Matthew played a heated game of Bananagrams, and Hilary took to Instagram to proudly show off that she finally beat Matthew in a game.

    I really relate to this feeling of elation, as I am currently losing 2-1 in Scrabble games against my fiancé during this time and losing…sucks!!!!

    Hilary was feeling pretty great about everything, until Matthew pointed out a particular section of her board.

    Sure enough, right there on Hilary's board in plain sight, the word "UL":

    In case you've never played Bananagrams, the object of the game is to be the first player to use up all of your letters to create a word grid — but, uh, all of the words have to be legit.

    Hilary countered the accusation, suggesting foul play, but the argument didn't hold up well under cross examination:

    In the end, Hilary concluded Bananagram-gate by admitting defeat:

    In conclusion: UL is not a word, but Bananagrams IS a phenomenal way to pass the time.
