General Tso Thumbnail

General Tso’s Spicy Synonyms

 

Background: Have you ever had General Tso’s Chicken? If so, have you ever considered exactly who is General Tso? Believe it or not, General Tso was a famous chef who had an obsession with synonyms. General Tso often played a peculiar game with his prodigies: Find the non-synonym among three actual synonyms associated with a particular word. If correct, his prodigies would be rewarded with a piece of his delicious chicken. If incorrect, they would have to eat the spiciest chicken he could fry up. Now, you can play the same game on mrnussbaum.com while practicing your synonyms and vocabulary.

Prove to General Tso you can withstand his spiciest chicken by using your skills to identify the non-synonym. First, look at the word that appears at the top of the page. Find the word among the four that is NOT a synonym. If you choose correctly, your “spicy tolerance” will remain constant. If you choose incorrectly, General Tso will make you eat the spiciest chicken he can fry up. When your “spicy tolerance” runs out, the game is over.  There are five total rounds.
