Bigsley and Bernadette: What's the Deal?

"You know, it really seems like you're ignoring me," said Bigsley one morning, "and I want to know why.  Don't tell me it's Herman.  The guy got tagged!  Do you realize what that means?  Besides the fact that he's an ignoramous, it means they are watching us.  Listen to me Baby.  I'm talking about the DNR here.  They probably got their binocs trained on us right now.  If that doesn't make you paranoid, it's time you visited the shrink."

Bernadette said something in reply but Bigsley couldn't hear what because of the chipping chicks.

"Don't you think it's about time they fend for themselves?" Bigsley continued. "When I was that age I was stealing worms from fishermen.  I was setting booby traps for tom cats.  I was staging jail breaks at aviaries.  How are these kids ever going to amount to anything if all they know how to do is whine?"


  1. Bigsley has a stupendous vocabulary. I had forgotten all about the word ignoramus. I am going to use it in a sentence today and of course, no matter who it refers to, I will mean it in the kindest possible way.

  2. I've known a few birds like Bigsley in my time. They are full of bluster and big talk, but it's the women behind them who quietly keep the world running. I'm guessing he remembers the word ignoramus because he's heard it more than once.


  3. NDL and MOM, Thanks for a hearty laugh!
