Did you know that the word: 'gullible' is not in the dictionary?

It’s in mine sure enough. 2004 Miriam-Webster paperback edition — “easily duped or cheated” — it’s an adjective.

And I’m sorry Masha, I’ve been saying gullible very slow for a good while now and it does not sound close to oranges. So I don’t get it.

I’m not sure what memes means either, to tell you the truth.

Is memes a noun, adjective, adverb, preposition, or something else altogether, or a verb? I could look it up of course, but that usually is fruitless. Meme or memes is not in my Miriam-Webster 2004 paperback dictionary.

In that case Thompson, try saying the word "dupable" really really slowly, and then tell me if it doesn't sound like "pineapple"!

(...and when ya get done with this, I've got some other words like "credulous", "deceivable" and "impressionable" you can do this same thing with as well, and then tell me what fruit they begin to sound like)

The two words are so far apart that one knows immediately it is nonsense. If one starts to sound the word to see ... then that person is a g-word person.

Thompson, with respect. Are you on the sauce when posting? Or is this old news. if so, it certainly is not becoming.

Well laffite, while YOU may find Thompson's missives around here as unbecoming, I have to admit they still quite often make ME laugh out loud!

(...uh-huh, kind'a like how I'll now ALSO admit to laughing out loud back when I'd watch Foster Brooks on those old Dean Martin roast shows) ;)

Then enjoy on! Perhaps I am mistaken. Apologies to Thompson if that's the case. And now "to my shame" I must admit that some of that stuff he writes (pedantry alert) reminds me of one of Louis-Ferdinand Celine's (1891-1964) down and out anti-heros, such as appears in Journey to the End of the Night (1932). Now I am enabling him, Dargo, and it's all your fault. Just kidding, friend Dargo. I think I read some contrary remarks about T and thought perhaps that in my grandiosity I was acting in the public interest, as if I were Speaker of the House or that great someone somewhere in some high and exalted and horrible place where judgement of others reigns supreme, a group where I certainly would fain not belong. I do retract my post to Thompson as being either too familiar, rude, or inappropriate in some inevitable way. Peace, Thompson.
