Parlor Game: Thus Says The Grand Mufti

      This is a favorite game among children. One stands up in a chair, who is called the Grand Mufti. He makes whatever motion he pleases; such as putting his hand on his heart, stretching out his arm, smiting his forehead, making up a sorrowful face, etc. At each motion he says, " Thus says the Grand Mufti," or "So says the Grand Mufti." When he says, " Thus says the Grand Mufti," every one must make just such a motion as he does ; but when he says, " So says the Grand Mufti," every one must keep still. A forfeit for a mistake.
