"The Poo List" is the list of words considered too offensive for inclusion in the third and fourth editions of Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (OSPD), but which are playable in Scrabble and listed in the Official Tournament Word List (OWL).

Below is the list as best as I have been able to cull it, including the exact definitions of the expurgated words as included in the second edition of the OSPD, when available. Other words, like BIRO, JACUZZI, LYCRA, PYREX and TOFUTTI were expurgated because trademark issues, but I have not included them here.

Notes on the list: Unlike other lists online, including this one posted at by the Seattle Scrabble Club, the list below includes some words that have subsequently been added to the OWL but which have not been added to the OSPD (for instance, GADJO and GINZO). In other words, this is a list of playable “offensive” words not in the OSPD4, not just “offensive” words that were cut from the OSPD. Hence, some later editions of the OSPD3 included PISSANT/-S, but as the OSPD4 doesn’t, it too is not included.

Notes on definitions: Wherever possible, the definition for the OSPD2 has been used. For words added after the OSPD2, or words too long to be included in it, definitions have been culled from Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, 11^{th} Edition when included there. The 4^{th} American Heritage College Dictionary was consulted next, then finally a host of other dictionaries.
