Subject: BS: More BIG flippin' words! Why?
From: GUEST,Blind DRunk in Blind River
Date: 28 Apr 12 - 12:11 AM

I keep seein' all these flippin' big words that people are usin' all the time on the Net, eh? What the flip FOR? Like....

"fiduciary"

What the flip does that mean anyways??? Is it Italian? Why would anyone flippin' use a word like that? Nobody in Blind River ever says "fiduciary" to no one ells, eh? If someone did say that to me I would probally punch him! Unlest he was Italian. If he was, I would say, "Speak English fer flip's sake! This is Canada, eh?"

THe problem, SHame, is that you are a fiduciary ne'er-do-well, a cipher in the fiduciary universe, a fiduciary catastrophe, a black hole of fiduciary mass.

That;'s why you can't relate to those who try to use the wird in a meaningful way.

Ah, John, a man after my own heart! My family for years has had our own branch of the Sesquipedalian Society. Our motto: Eschew Obfuscation.
My daughter (age 23) recently wrote "Sesquipedalian" on a form that asked her to state her religious preferences. My son, from about the age of 5, adhered to the principal: why use a 2-syllable word when there's a perfectly good 4- or 5- syllable word available?

What is that? I feel a spark of utter delight when I hear someone choose the multisyllabic over the pedestrian!

Silly Shane. You use big words all the time, such as

carburetor
barbecue
sphagnum moss
exhaustmanifold

The trouble with 'fiduciary' is not that it's long. The trouble is that half the people who use it don't really have anything to say.

The same goes for 'paradigm.'

Shame, "fiduciary" is English. Really old English, but English. "Fid" is a really old word that means, well, like, when Shakespeare says in his play "Romeo and Juliet," "Fid ye, Jack, and the horse ye rode in on!" "U" is just the word you. "Ciary" means "the person who did it," like when you knocked up that skank in Sudbury you were the "ciary" in old English.

So "fiduciary" means the person who said, "Fid you!" If anybody calls you a "fiduciatry" you should punch 'em in the nose. Don't take that crap from any body! You yell at them, "Stinkin' fiduciary!" and punch 'em out. Even the cops won't arrest you for that because the fiduciary has got it comin'.

What an engaging discourse! I too embrace the hypothesis that an ostentatious display of verbal pyrotechnics, complete with perfectly punctuated sub-clauses, is enriching and ennobling for speaker and listener alike.

I'd be inclined to hit a bug like that with a hand held local immpactory device... or a hammer.

I once told a carpenter in Newfoundand who was pissed off at all the drawings displaying measurements in Metric (I know, SI) to simply use his hand held metric-imperial linear measurement conversion device. He looked at me in a perplexed manner. When I said, "Yer fookin tape measure. It's got Metric on one side and Imperial on the other.", he threw it at me. Hurt, too.

You must understand, Shame, that circumlocutory verbiage often camouflages a definitive and extensive vocabulary which is operating in mens insanus, or at least in mens vaccuo. In such situations I suggest that you stand up straight and expectorate in their ocular organs.
