A Simple Post...

It has come to my attention that I have the tendency to talk about a bunch of shit on this blog that most people don't understand. Obscure pop culture references may be appreciated by some, but they probably won't help me in my quest to build a mass audience. Here is a post I think everyone can appreciate - one for the whole family! It deals with living creatures whose names double as verbs. For instance, there's:

Duck

Fish

Although you don't hear it as much anymore, any crossword puzzle fan knows to "ape" someone is to imitate them.

Then, of course, there's Yak.

You left out Goose, which is one of my favorite Mall activities.

My mom used to refer to the divorcee next door as a woman who like to "cat around."

All good ones!

I could've spent a lot more time on this one, but I got tired.

Some people get caught "dogging it" or "horsing around". You can also "cock" things. You can "weasel" your way into things. You can "badger" a witness.

Don't forget "fly" and "bug".

Not sure why, but this post fucking cracked me up. Simple comedy gets me all the time.
