Beggar

BEGGAR, n. One who has relied on the assistance of his friends.

2009 Update:  A miser in doubt.
A gallant knight 
Took to flight
Having found himself outnumbered
"Glad I'd be to stand and parry
But the king's ransom I carry
Was already by Parliament encumbered."
-Sir Rudolph Tattleberry

Beggar:
my dog is a little beggar
how else can she get more bigger
poor soul she loves to eat with me
only crumbs she'll get poor doggie

in 09 why should a miser be in doubt? I wish I were. It would save all the guilt and worries about a future when I might not be a miser but a homeless person with a house

BEGGAR n. in Hawaii, that would be the minimum wager worker with less than three full-time jobs, and a part-time job (to support him in his canvas and cardboard shack on the beach).

Little girls used to chant this to learn what type of man they would marry.

"Rich man, poor man,
Beggar man, thief.
Doctor, lawyer,
Indian chief!"

Now they wisely say, "a woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle," saving big bucks on divorce and stuff.

My word verification was "hyper"... they are certainly NOT talking about me.

Ha, Jim;
Looking into Willie's eyes,
Proves the maker kind and wise,
So precisely proportionalized
Wide as the moon, appetite the same size,


Poobah, such a thin line and such a wide gap.

Dang, Amoeba.

Jenn, may you get no more advice than you need. It looks good, though.

Pia, that was Biercean. You've got a home on this site.

Good luck in February, JJ.

Ariel, are you a fairy now, too?

Great line, Terry.

Quilly, begging sounds more efficient.

And unto you, Ariel.

Oh, come on Jenn. Mightn't it pay for itself in booksales?

Right, TLP, and countless vacuum bags.

Amoeba, I'll even put something in it.

Oh, ok, Ice.

Funny, Terry!

JD, $5 Billion do ya?

Ariel, it means already been allocated for spending.

Bear, I have almost the same story. We must have run with similar people.
