[Eating at DQ to celebrate JD's straight As, he sees a kid he recognizes]

JD: Schooligan.

Sy: Huh?

JD: A kid from school-

Sy: -that's a "hooligan"?

JD: Yeah.

SSB: What grade is he in?

JD: 6th. He's a former bully.

Sy: Is he a reformed bully?

JD: What's that mean?

Sy: It means that what he used to be he's not now because he, er-

SSB: -had a revelation.

Sy: Like he got fixed.

SSB: Yeah, that usually takes care of the aggression.

"Schooligan" is a pretty clever word even if JD didn't intend it.

Shannon, he did mean it. The meaning of "schooligan" is a kid from school that is a hooligan. He likes to play with words. We had a lot of trouble getting him to speak English when he was young because he had made up his own language and insisted that everyone else speak it too. In fact, it is still hard to get him to speak English!

I was pretty proud of him for "schooligan".

Remember the wisdom of Bob Barker -- be sure to spay and neuter your bullies.

Those farmer bullies are the worst. In high school they kept running around, knocking over stuff, humping anyone they could find in the hallways. I wish that bully-fixing was mandatory.

SSB, me too.

Otto Man, we certainly don't need more of them roaming around. I hear that there is a new bill being proposed in WI that would allow hunters to freely shoot bullies that are roaming unsupervised outside the city limits. ;)

The Doc, I noticed the way the italicized "o" looks too. It made me giggle.
