This one comes from Teresa’s friend Sue who, despite my warnings, is continuing to read my blog. Fortunately, she works somewhere that she can receive swift medical attention, although I can’t say how she can recover from any moral or spiritual damage this blog might induce.
Anywho, Sue presented a great new word: Biddiots. It can be used to refer to two classes of people.
First, Biddiots refers to old Biddies who are mean. I’m sure you know who I’m talking about. The ones who cut you off at the supermarket checkout lines. The ones who fake senility to get discounts at IHOP. The ones whose Sunday drives are so slow, they don’t get home till Monday. The ones who are constantly *Shush-ing* other people in church, probably because they need to ask forgiveness for all the people they pissed off with their rude behavior and poor driving.
Strangely, there is no male counterpart to this kind of Biddiot; the male of the species tends to become chock-full of dirty jokes. I don’t have a word for that one yet, but Dirty Old Man has worked in the past.
Secondly, Biddiots can refer to the class of people who will bid on anything they see on E-bay. Things like Elvis’ Toe Nail for example.
