    Pat’s Guide to Speaking Willard 

    One of my favorite things about living in Willard over the years was the vocabulary.  Some was brought in from outside sources and some was created right on the spot.  Here are a few of my personal faves, along with popular usages… please feel free to add your own:

    Hammertime (n) – A difficult word to describe… mostly used in place of the word ‘stuff’.  “Harris, what the heck is this hammertime?  There’s junk all over the floor.”

    Sold (adj or v or n) – in trouble and/or out of position.  Can also mean awkward.  “Did you see Phil’s face after the Giles County cop pulled him over?  Sold.”

    Crapsack (n) – Scott Robinson. “Has anyone seen Crapsack?”

    Ing (n) – 1,ooo points.  “Mo, that’s easily 50 ings with that one move.”

    Mang (n) – 1,000,000 points.  “Mo, you’re about to drop a mang!”

    Mank, Mank, Mank (n) – a taunting gesture, usually used with both fists pumping up and down.  Often followed by either the same phrase, or else followed by a ‘sproing’.  (To Rawls) “Mank, mank, mank.  Sproing!”

      Pat, could I trouble you for a definition of “cold busted”?

        Anything for you, Bulldog. Cold Busted (adj) – No other recourse. Done for. “I just tried to ask that girl out, and got, ‘I like you as a friend.’ I am so cold busted.”

    Brick Thrower 

    This has nothing to do with Willard, but the story is awesome…

    Brickthrower Remains Defiant (Shanghai Daily)

    A retired teacher, who sparked nationwide controversy – and a lot of support – by throwing bricks at vehicles that ran red lights on a pedestrian crossing, yesterday defended his action, saying he was protecting pedestrians.

    Yan Zhengping, 74, became an Internet sensation after he lobbed bricks at 14 cars at the intersection over a period of more than three hours late last Thursday. A large crowd saw his feat and cheered him on in Lanzhou, capital of northwest China’s Gansu Province.

    “I know it was illegal, but I had to do it to raise awareness on the safety of pedestrians,” said Yan.

    Hundreds of local residents applauded him last Thursday and two elderly men joined him in throwing bricks. Some crowd members found them more bricks and brought them water.

    All 14 drivers fled the scene in their damaged cars after seeing the crowd.

    Police interviewed Yan and he was released without charge.
