WELCOME to FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 9, 2022
Old Fashioned Insults We Should Bring Back. Part I
- Afternoon Farmer
A laggard; a farmer who rises late and is behind in his chores; hence,
anyone who loses his opportunities.
- All Hat and No Cattle
An empty boaster; a man who is all talk and no action.
A short gun, with a wide bore, for carrying slugs; also, a dumb, blundering fellow.
A mean fellow; a man trying to worm something out of another, either money or information.
- Chatterbox or Clack-Box
An excessive, incessant talker or chatterer. “Clack-box” is the more derisive variation.
- Chuckle Head
Much the same as “buffle head,” “cabbage head,” “chowder head,” “cod’s head” —
all signifying stupidity and weakness of intellect; a fool.
- Death’s Head Upon a Mop-Stick
A poor, miserable, emaciated fellow. He looked as pleasant as the pains of death.
- Duke of Limbs
A tall, awkward fellow.
- Fop, Foppish, Foppling, Fop-doodle
A man of small understanding and much ostentation; a pretender; a man fond of show,
dress, and flutter; an impertinent: foppery is derived from fop, and signifies the kind of folly
which displays itself in dress and manners: to be foppish is to be fantastically and affectedly fine;
vain; ostentatious; showy, and ridiculous: foppling is the diminutive of fop, a fool half-grown;
a thing that endeavors to attract admiration to its pretty person, its pretty dress, etc. In composition
it makes fop-doodle, a fool double-distilled; one that provokes ridicule and contempt, who thrusts
himself into danger with no other chance than a sound beating for his pains.
A trifler, idler, good-for-nothing fellow; silly and superficial.
A nervous, fidgety person.
A person who moves or travels restlessly or aimlessly from one social activity or place to
another, seeking pleasure; a trapesing gossip; as a housewife seldom seen at home,
but very often at her neighbor’s doors.
- Gentleman of Four Outs
When a vulgar, blustering fellow asserts that he is a gentleman, the retort generally is,
“Yes, a gentleman of four outs,” that is, without wit, without money, without credit, and without manners.
A hot-headed person.
A simple, easy person, who suffers himself to be made a fool of, and is readily persuaded
to any act or undertaking by his associates, who inwardly laugh at his folly.
- Go By the Ground
A short person, man or woman.
Large, clumsy fellow.
- Greedy Guts
A covetous or gluttonous person.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT WEEKEND people, stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A man runs into the vet’s office carrying his dog, screaming for help. The vet rushes
him back to an examination room and has him put his dog down on the examination
table. The vet examines the still, limp, cold body and after a few moments,
tells the man that his dog, regrettably, is dead. The man, clearly agitated and not willing
to accept this, demands a second opinion. The vet goes into the back room and comes
out with a cat and puts the cat down next to the dog’s body. The cat sniffs the body,
walks from head to tail, poking and sniffing the dog’s body and finally looks at the vet and meows.
The vet looks at the man and says, “I’m sorry, but the cat thinks that your dog is dead, too.”
The man is still unwilling to accept that his dog is dead, so the vet brings in a black labrador.
The lab sniffs the body, walks from head to tail, and finally looks at the vet and barks.
The vet looks at the man and says, “I’m sorry, but the lab thinks your dog is dead too.” The man,
finally resigned to the diagnosis, thanks the vet and asks how much he owes.
The vet answers, “$650.”
“$650 to tell me my dog is dead?” exclaims the man.
“Well,” the vet replies, “I would only have charged you $50 for my initial diagnosis.
The additional $600 was for the cat scan and lab tests.” 😳
