    You Nimrod

    How many times have you heard that insult tossed around?


    "Nimrod" is the name of Noah's great-grandson, a mighty hunter.
    Bugs Bunny called Elmer Fudd a "Nimrod", a satirical insult to Fudd being a terrible hunter.

    Bugs Bunnyís reshaping of the meaning ďnimrodĒ is a prime example of how life imitates art. Even if a wordís usage has no basis in fact, if enough people use it incorrectly long enough, it will become correct. In doing similarly, even nimrods like us can continue to honor Bugs Bunnyís legacy.

    Maybe everybody else already knew this, but I just learned it today, LOL.

    Perhaps it was a negative reference originally. Any "great hunter" that kills the last two of anything strikes me as a chump. Let them breed you nimrod

    How dare you take my joke and turn it in to a learning experience that makes me come away a little more educated and armed with even more trivial knowledge...
