Come, you are a tedious fool. To the purpose.

Today Thing One tried to tell me that no one but trivia buffs know the word Elizabethan.
I said to him,
Thou impertinent scurvy-valiant joithead!

Your brain is as dry as the remainder biscuit after a voyage.


Ok, not really, but I think I may have expressed some disappointment with his lack of familiarity with the terms after TWO FREAKING YEARS of high school English.

He is studying Julius Caesar in Honors English this year.
If he doesn't hear the term at school this year I shall do such things, I know not what, but they shall be the terrors of the earth!.
