Bagged Fibbing Friday

Here we go then, with Pensitivity101’s mixed bag from last week……….

  1. What is boisterous?

That’s a group of young males having fun.  They can be loud.  They often shout and yell.  It’s the opposite of gurlsterous, where young females play together.  They screech and squeal in such high tones that neighbourhood dogs have their paws over their ears.

2. What is a womaniser?

That is Cerberus, the modern, three-headed Hellhound consisting of Woke society, and Presentism, aided and abetted by years of eating and drinking food from plastic containers, which leech out pseudo-estrogen, all contributing to Real Men becoming simpering wimps.

3. What is a faux pas?

It’s the front foot of the quick, red vulpine animal that jumped over the lazy, brown dog, which the nobility chase with horses – the unspeakable, pursuing the inedible.

4. Define plumber

A crack addict.

5. What is a sous-chef?

(S)He is a high-class victuals preparation expert, who does so using copious amounts of wine and various liqueurs.  Sometimes, they even put some in the food.

6. What is antisocial?

She is my Father’s younger sister, after she’s imbibed 5 or 6 Medicinal toddies.’

7. Why did they call the wind Maria?

How do you solve a problem named Maria?  I thought they called the wind Mariah, but what do I know about music??  I can’t Carey a tune in a bucket.

8. Where would you find a kettle drum?

Underneath the big corn popper at the movie theater, or county fair.

9. What is a kango drill?

It is an Australian Military Band marching maneuver.

10. What makes bread rise?

Inflation!  😳  And petrol, and rent, and….

  1. I thought a faux pas was when you failed a paternity test.

    They DO call the wind Mariah, ’cause when the wind whips between the buildings in Chicago, it hits notes only Mariah and Idina Menzel can reach – and Mariah got the copyright first. 😦

    Where do you find a kettle drum? Next to a pan flute? 😉

    And I thought the GOP was anti-social. Seems like they’re always screaming about US Dems trying to be socialists.

    I liked the plumber the best. Kind of like a psychiatrist – somebody you hire to deal with your sh…. er …. crap.

  4. By the by, do you know where that old phrase “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog’s back” comes from? The ancient world of Teletype machines, a bridge between the telegraph and the Internet. To be sure that two machines were in sync and properly communicating, that phrase would be sent. It uses every letter in the alphabet at least once, confirming proper connectivity and transmission between Teletypes. A bit of ancient history for ya! 🙂

      Yeah! They’re known as Pangrams, and originated for just that purpose. The fox and dog one is probably the most common, best-known one, but there are more here.!&&p=0dd346bfe9cf1a05JmltdHM9MTY3NDc3NzYwMCZpZ3VpZD0wZWE4NDhlYS01OGQ2LTYwMWQtMTVlNS00MzA5NTlhYjYxNzUmaW5zaWQ9NTE3OQ&ptn=3&hsh=3&fclid=0ea848ea-58d6-601d-15e5-430959ab6175&psq=phrase+with+every+letter+of+the+alphabet&u=a1aHR0cHM6Ly9qZXlyYW5tYWluLmNvbS8yMDE5LzA1LzExL3NlbnRlbmNlcy10aGF0LWNvbnRhaW4tZXZlcnktbGV0dGVyLW9mLXRoZS1hbHBoYWJldC8&ntb=1


      • I assume you know why the QWERTY keyboard is laid out the way it is – for touch typing in the manual typewriter days. More frequently used letters were in the middle, and the least common out to the edges where you reached with your pinkies. Yes, I’ve used a manual typewriter, and yes, it is a pain in the …. fingers! 😉

    I’ll have to check. I’m trying to avoid the falling ice.

      Mr. Miyagi say, Best way to avoid falling ice – stay home. What’s that?? Have to support yourself?? Damn!! I knew there’d be a catch. 😉 🙂

        Could work from home but NFW. Would have to buy a home office and be reimbursed for a fraction. That’s called paying the company to work for it. Many do since covid. Staying in sounds so nice, though, but no. I love working for my company but I won’t pay it.

    • That ain’t no joke around Sears Tower. My dad saw the aftermath of a guy who got speared with ice through the chest! Lucky SOB – he survived. (The guy who got hit survived. As did my dad. :p ) He also saw a couch that got sucked out a window from the 80th-something floor. Yikes!

    I know the type saying well. My typing teachers and my mom used to make me type it in typing drills.

    • Yeah, it got picked up as both a typing lesson and a test for the newer electric typewriters, especially the IBM Selectric with the type ball instead of the old individual hammers for each letter. I grew up with all that stuff – my dad worked for Illinois Bell, and spent the 2nd half of his career teaching data transmission gear after having installed telephones and fixing Teletypes. That’s where the Lufthansa joke comes from. Yep – my sense of humour is inherited! 😀
