Pigmy

PIGMY, n. One of a tribe of very small men found by ancient travelers in many parts of the world, but by modern in Central Africa only. The Pigmies are so called to distinguish them from the bulkier Caucasians — who are Hogmies.

2010 Update: An economical race that grows smaller than the rest of its species. An individual smaller than the rest of its race may be known as a RUNT, BIGFELLA or GOSSIP.

I think collectively they are known as "youze guize".

Oops, watch it, Doug. A blogger, Marie Claire, has gotten into trouble (with the news) for posting her disdain for 'heavy people.'

I do sort of remember an old movie where a major line was, "Runt, runt, runt." "Sort of" means that is all I remember. [Google didn't help me much here.]

To continue the first paragraph, Harry Smith, Co-Anchor, The Early Show, went on to say that a lot of bloggers are 'snarky.' That remark has put him on my bad list.
..
BTW, a lot of Facebooker's ARE 'snarky.'
I won't name any.

Speaking of snarky, Jim, I just glanced at the first paragraph of your "newest" post:

No Ariel. It's not yick. It's yep.

falinate: overcompensate for too few comments left yesterday.

Jim said...

Okay, but Karen, did you notice that it was also the first butternut squash pie I had eaten?
"... Mary Lou had made and brought the most delicious butternut squash pie I have eaten. Well, it was the first one also but it was really good."

Karen Gilda, did I hear a "Never mind?"

I don't know about butternut squash pie but I think I've met me some pygmy's

I know Randy Newman wrote a song about them.


They got little hands
Little eyes
They walk around
Tellin' great big lies
They got little noses
And tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoes
On their nasty little feet

Well, I don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
Don't want no short people

I thought today's word had something to do with that whole bag of Halloween candy I just ate ....

Doug said...

Karen, collectively they might be known as "some guy."

Jim, I'm pretty trouble-free but thanks for the caution.

Haha, Ariel. Possibly a bad combination.

Karen, you're catching up fast.

Jim, that's good evidence. I can tell you were a lawyer.

Pia, South Carolina's a good place to find 'em.

Cooper, I remember that song. I think I was in the fourth grade and it felt good to laugh at other little people.

TLP, some titans have it too.

Enjoy, Quilly.
