What’re Words For, Part 9

So, the elections are over. FINALLY. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some idiotic politicians still in office.

The inspiration for this week’s “How to Talk Yankee” submission has to do with these seemingly brain-dead people.

Phrase: Number’n a Hake (Adj. phrase)
Definition: Stupid, dunce
Why the poor hake---which is delicious corned and served with potatoes and salt pork scraps—is so singled out is unknown.

(Definition from: "How To Talk Yankee", by Gerald Lewis & Tim Sample, copyright 1979, 1986 by The Thorndike Press; copyright 1989 by the First North Country Press)

Here are some of my examples of this phrase:

George Bush Jr is number’n a hake. (Although he was smart enough to fool enough Americans, who were number’n a hake, into voting for him)

Karl Rove, once thought to be a genius within the Republican party, is actually number’n a hake.

Until next time, chummy, have a good day, ayuh.

I have never heard this phrase before! I can't even put it to use. *sigh*

Sar: ha ha! I'm pretty sure you can find a way to discuss someone (or something...?) that's number'n a hake!
