Say what you will about Scalia, but he probably knows the English language better than any jurist we've had over the past 100 years.

Strange. The first Scottish word that comes to my mind when it comes to Scalia is bawbag.

DarkVader: killdawabbitt: Aidan: hat is, THEY are the ones creating the problem because they have no real problems bothering them. I think the modern version is drama queen.

Very insightful, thanks.  I still prefer fussbucket- the modern equivalent.  If it's not in the urban dictionary, I will shortly place it there.  Maybe one day it will achieve "cronuts" status.

Gah!  Bah!  Humbug!

Seriously, fussbucket is just wrong, the word is fussbudget.


LOL- looks like you get the same reaction my wife gets!!! Now I know for sure it's a keeper!

This is a child's response. A 74 year old man, once thought a giant of the law, is arguing with the emotional intensity and using the same tactics as a 6 year old. Clarence Thomas looks like a model of probity and restraint by comparison.

All this hate, hate leeds to the dark side. once you start down that path .....

Bored of the Rings:

Turning to Spam, he wished to ask him if he felt it too.
"Argle-bargle morble whoosh?" said Frito.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Lucy from Peanuts was called a fussbudget.

Matter of fact, I think that's the only place I've ever heard that word used. Maybe Charles Schulz invented it.

Unlike, seeing as it was in use 18 years before he was born.

The Green Intern: victrin: Let's hate him because he's a bigoted ass, not because he chose a silly word.

Can't we hate him for multiple reasons?  I mean, silly word usage isn't as high on the list as bigotry, but I'd say his hypocritical tendencies would be just cause as well.


The important thing is that you hate.  You hate and want to hurt.  To make others suffer horribly.

That's pretty much all you got.  Without hate you are nothing.

FTA: "The Scots have a penchant for reduplication," notes Zimmer. "Along with 'argle-bargle' and its cousins 'argie-bargie' and 'argol-bargolous', there's 'catter-batter' (to wrangle), 'crinkie-winkie' (a contention), 'hackum-plackum' (to barter), etc."

They forgot rumpty-pumpty.

Damn... looks like someone beat me to it- Fussbucket has been in the urban dictionary since 2009.

Uhm. That's an old homeless guy tripping balls on E at a rave. But I understand how your brain confused him with a typical Democrat.

"Rumpy-pumpy" is 1960s tabloid-speak for farking.
