Cack: (n) a talkative, gossiping person
I have a new favorite word!
They cackle–like poultry. And this stimulated me to realize that there are three types:
There’s the duck cack:
This is the person who tears another individual’s character apart, under the guise of concern and prayerful wishes, ducking away from the responsibility of being a back-biting loser.
This is followed by the chicken cack:
“Cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck” all day long, pecking at the integrity of others, only to turn chicken and deny their involvement when confronted. They’ll even tell you who started the rumor.
And finally, there’s the goose cack:
These are people who are so sure that they’re direct emissaries from the Lord God Almighty that they’ll take their long neck and beak and unapologetically stick it up your ass–goosing you.
After all, when you speak for the heavens, you’re certainly not concerned about earthly criticism.
Here’s the question:
Can I catch myself when I become a cack?
Can I keep myself from barnyard nonsense so I have the right to live in the house with other sensible human beings?
