Five Times Better Use of the Dictionary

Hello there, persons of the earth. As you well know by now, I am Nuffy Sarge Noe, and I am Five Times Better than the average person. This is the result of cerebritis, a technical term referring to the extra large size of my frontal brain lobes. Because of this, I have increased brain capacity and comprehension. Among my many Five Times Better abilities is my improved used of the dictionary.

I noted recently that Mr. Earl Fando posted about an upcoming trip to Ireland, in which he claims he will be residing in a "picaresque village." Now, people who are not Five Times Better will read that and think that he meant "picturesque village," which would mean a village so pretty it resembles a picture or a painting. Indeed, that is what the word "picturesque" means.

However, please note that Mr. Fando actually used the word "picaresque," which is similar in spelling with a few letter variations. "Picaresque" is defined as "relating to rogues or rascals ; of, relating to, suggesting, or being a type of fiction dealing with the episodic adventures of a roguish protagonist." If you don't believe me, look it up, gentle people. It is true.

Now, you think about that for a minute there, dear persons. What is Earl Fando admitting about himself? He is saying one of two things:

1) he will be staying in a village that is a known residence of rogues and rascals.

2) his trip to Ireland will be another episode in the true story of the rogue/rascal Earl Fando.

These are the kinds of truths that being Five Times Better reveals to you. Thanks and have a pleasant noon.
