Word: Lumper’s helper (characterization)
Since a lumper does absolutely mindless stevedore work, a lumper’s helper would hardly be a fountainhead of erudition. In fact, he’d probably be number than a pounded thumb: “wouldn’t know enough to pour water out of a boot - with the directions stamped on the heel.”

Did You Know Tuesday
Did you know that B&M Baked Beans were first sold in 1927? Produced by the Burnham & Morrill Company in Portland, ME, this product took nearly seven years of testing before B&M Brick Oven Baked Beans hit the store shelves. They continue to be made in Portland.
The Burham & Morrill Company has been in business since 1867.
