On the night of our manly rib-eating affair...

Jiggs and I for some reason got into an argument about spelling boys names.

I suggested a spelling of a name that ends in -y with the less seen -ie, and Jiggs nearly had an aneurysm, saying that that was reserved for girls and pansies.

At that time, I became bored with the conversation and decided to go back to peeling sweet strands of beef off the remaining bones on my plate, rather than waste time arguing.

In retrospect, though, I should have been like...

Hey Jiggs....What about Johnnie Walker. He makes Scotch, and he's not a pansy

What about Freddie Prinze Jr.? He's a man's man!

And what about Robbie? Lots of guys are named Robbie.

Anyway. This train of self-regret and self-loathing at my poor arguing skills was finally derailed when I realized I could just prove to Jiggs that -ie ending names can be quite masculine, indeed...

Suck it, Jiggs!:

If only I could get all those kittens in a sandwich!

This is the bestest post ever, though I maintain my contention that ending a man's name with "ie" turns it into a woman's name. Consider a few just off the top of my head:

Bob-> Bobbie
Jack-> Jackie
Carl-> Carlie
Pat ->Pattie

And I bet if I sat around for a while it would be easy to come up with many more. Thus Johnnie is the pansie way to spell it.

Suck it, Tastie!

Tumbleweed said...

I totally agree with Jiggs, -ie is the girlie way to go not the manly one. See what I did there? Gotta be quick!
Casey or Casie
Nicky or Nickie
Frank or Frankie
Tommy or Tommie
Okay that last one didn't really work...I'm tired and going back to beddie now.

Nick said...

I only allow hot chicks and my parents (who are, unfortunately, not hot chicks. Also, they're related to me) to call me Nicky. It's always spelled with a -y. I can tell by how my parents say it and how the hot chicks yell it.

Übermilf said...

Willie Nelson.

Also:

"Oh, Nicky, you're so fine
You're so fine
You blow my mind
Hey Nicky
Hey Nicky"

i know you people didn't pick on johnnie and willie.

they are classics, and they would prove how manly they are if they weren't both dead.

not dead? well. whatever.

The Husband said...

great post.

love,

carlie.

jiggs said...

freddy: that's right. I'll give them the ie beatdown! also cool about the banner.

tumbleweed: it's good that we agree. I don't know what I would do if we didn't.

uebermilf: I would love to bite your feminine assie

nick: true dat

uebermilf: willie nelson is a little girlie, you must admit. With his pigtails and addiction to reefer

miss k: Johnny Cash spelled his name with a y not ie. and that's because he's a man. And admittedly, willie is a little girlish

carl: you're a ladie. oh sweet ladie

Isn't that why Charlie Norris goes by "Chuck"?

jiggs said...

signgurl: thanks yo

lee ann: you make me feel masculine, lee ann!

tumbleweed: true dat

miss k: You're right in suggesting that p.diddy is more masculine sounding that p. diddie.
