Forum Trivia

As it seems to be the season of quizzes & triva, I guess I will add to it. It seems that Cur is going to be looking at a lot of info on some of us that want to join the "Get Hammered" chat room.

Well how many know what "Cur" stands for, and who, in our forums family, unintentionaly gave him his nickname.

I know some of the folks that have been on here a while should know, but the rest should have fun with it.

The honest truth is, and will be verified by Stephen Rogers, was that in one of my grouchier moods, Stephen called me a "curmudgeon". Right about that time, Bill Gaither joined us and said that he would be the resident "Cur" from then on and he has been.


Here's how

I remember it:

Originally Stephen called George a curmudgeon.

The way I picked it up was someone, I believe Marty Shimkus,
called both George and myself, "curmudgeons", by saying, "(sic) it's just two old curmudgeons going at it", or something like that.....I came back with a post, using the name, "curmudgeon" to poke fun at the statement, later shortened it to "cur", and the rest is history


That isn't the ..............

Jeff, I'll have you know that I haven't worn one of those since I played football. Any man with that thirty center in his vocabulary doesn't need to hear what I posted. Obviously you didn't disagree. LOL with George.

But some of the posts weren't archived. I used to start useless threads in forum categories that weren't archived - to save storage space for WASCO. Even I thought I gave the name to you two curmudgedly type folks.


Curmudgeon

According to Webster:

Cur-mudg-eon - Noun. (Word of uncertain origin.) A testy,cranky,snappish,person, especially an older man with an exceptionally long penis who knows how to use it.

I see nothing wrong with being one of those....LOL


My dictionary says...

This response submitted by marty on 1/7/05 at 10:51 AM. ( ) 24.15.104.42

..."exceptionally long and THIN..." And it goes on to say that "because of it's limited use, manytimes this is the cause of curmudgeoness"... lol!
