There are some great words that folks can label somebody with, and one of Bob’s faves is this one.


Expressive, but not as harsh as others, and as a bonus, in today’s increasingly polygender and/or gender neutral world we find ourselves in, it has more potential application than ever before since it’s neither here nor there in that sense, and also whether so in reality (by action) or just by derogatory conceptual meaning.


Back in Bob’s teen daze [sic], for a few years on the job almost every Saturday, he fell into that bucket. It was all at the hand of a certain potty-mouthed but wise, grizzled colleague named Lulu.

“… you cocksucker!” barked Lulu in his pronounced French Canadian accent,
but a smile undermined his tone. He was prone to random generic name-calling
and enjoyed taunting the younger workers. Most took it in stride. Everybody was
a cocksucker.

Hey, one could  be called a lot worse, like, erhm, say … as follows. 


The word’s a classic, and gets a lot of usage. This fine scene from The Usual Suspects (1995) comes to mind.


Deadwood done did it good too.


More on Deadwood here and its fiery flavor of frontier dialogue. Following is a somewhat more introspective and deeper philosophical take from The Dictator (2012). 


One can further enhance the word’s use with other adjectives. It’s flexible … you can play around with it, to make it harder or softer, as needed. N.B. This regards the "usage" of the term, Bob means, for the porpoises [sic] of clarity.

First usage of the term goes back to circa 1890, looking at the etymology of it from these two finds here and here.


Here’s a sophisticated Salon piece, The modern history of swearing: Where all the dirtiest words come from, on the origins of various other such words, beyond this particular one under the shine of our Sunday spotlight.

Creative possibilities abound. Here’s a US centric spin from an academic slant to foster competitive school spirit and all.


Here in Canuckistan, Trailer Park Boys took it to a higher level of excellence in application.


It may also come into everyday usage in the work place.


Is it real or is it VATSIM? Dunno. 


We now return your sorry ass to regularly scheduled Stuporbowl LIII programming and related festivities. Bob found a noteworthy sports bet challenge from two years ago with Meet the 2 porn stars who owe America 500,000 blowjobs. It's tied to today’s event and word in combination, with actual application in the field, be it on a Sunday, or any other day of the week.

One had to dig really deep to pull that last piece up. But hey, Bob's always willing to put in the hard work for your benefit, so you can be hip to what's going on out there. 

Bob’s wedding tome is chocka-blocka full of a certain style of language, as he travels worldwide to weddings all over the gaff. So be warned, if easily offended. A few readers have been shocked.


But hey, it is what it is. No apologizin’ there, so put that in your pipe and “smoke” it, anyway you want.
