Balderdash!?!?!?!?!?!

Just got a comment from "Big Bro", who really is my Big Bro asking the definition of "Balderdash" as in my random blog title "Bits and Balderdash".

According to Dictionary.com: "Balderdash" - noun
 
1. senseless, stupid, or exaggerated talk or writing; nonsense.
2. Obsolete. a muddled mixture of liquors.
Origin: 1590–1600;  of obscure orig.

Two things: 


1. I had the first definition in mind as I'm using the word balderdash.

2. Truth be told ... I stole the "Bits & Balderdash" from another blog by "the voice of the Minnesota Vikings" Paul Allen @ KFAN in Minneapolis, that he  calls "Bits and Boredom". Not wanting to completely clomp on his originality I changed it for my blog.
Remember ... the definition of original is forgetting where you heard it first!  

I'm OUT!  (oops, that is Jim Rome's tag line!)

I remain, 
Pastor Steve

Ditto on the FBBC homecoming post. I can't believe I have two kids in college.

The balderdash question was interesting but I am wondering what "carnal" style games and events were going on at IRBC. I hope they were not serving balderdash.

Brian,

Thanks for the heads up on the spelling error! My wife laughed sooo hard I thought she was going to choke!

Got to keep an eye on those Baptist and the games they play!

Thanks Again!!!!

Your welcome. I don't normally bring these things up. Glass houses and all that. This time I could not resist. Enjoy yourself Friday in the great outdoors.
