Super Bowl is over. No sports on TV that I like to watch. I truly wish I was interested in college basketball but other than a few games during March Madness I just can’t get into it. The days are getting longer, over an hour more of daylight since the shortest day of the year. Time to organize my sock drawer which is really just a euphemism for spanking your mom just the way she likes it done.
When asked who sang this song my boys proudly announced “Motley Crue of course” SMH
During the recent Deadspin dust up where a writer tried to ridicule Ted Cruz and he pwned her there was a series of tweets by one of the editors looking to fight the people mocking his site. Here’s an article if you’re not familiar with the story.
“Unsurprising that not one Ted Cruz-supporting cuck/Twitter user is willing to face me in the UFC octagon.” — Tim Marchman (@timmarchman)
A Special Forces veteran // MMA fighter answered his challenge with a curious response of “I’m your huckleberry“. I have heard this used a few times over the years and when I searched for it I realized it was a famous line from the movie Tombstone.
[Tombstone is a great movie that I haven’t seen end to end recently. It’s such a great movie that it’s on frequently and when a few commercial blocks have bored me to tears I give up. Maybe it’s time to buy a copy.]
Where does the expression come from?
“The etymology of the phrase is traced back to Aurthurian Lore. Huckleberry Garlands were said to be given to Knights of the Kingdom for coming to the service of a damsel. They would approach the lady, lower their lance, and receive the small branch as a symbol of gratitude; much like a medal.
Therefore, “I’m Your Huckleberry” literally means “I’m your Hero.”
In current adaptaions, in reference to the movie Tombstone, it means “I’m your man.” as an affirmative response to a challenge.”
Another idea is that the handles on a coffin are also known as huckles. Who knew.
Pall bearer = Huckle bearer Fascinating. Let’s do what mankind has done for millennia and make alcohol
Don’t forget the dog
