We'll Rant and We'll Roar

Republic Flag

Right on, now give me a hand to rig up the rodney you randy old rag moll before I gets rotted and leaves you alone.

ragged - jagged, especially cliffs

rag moll - an untidily dressed person

randy - 1)sexually aroused 2)a boisterous party

ravel {rhymes with gravel} - a loose thread

republic flag - old pink, white and green flag from 1843, recently revived and used as a symbolic gesture of discontent with the Canadian Government

Republic of Doyle - got to give a shout out to Newfoundland television (available on Netflix I might add)

rig - to outfit for a voyage or venture (also rig out or rig up)

rodney - a small rowboat with a sleek, round hull an small flat stern

rotted - angry


  1. Rotted is angry - I'll remember that for future real-life conversations!

  2. I like rotted. I think I'll use that.

  3. Hi Baygirl .. a rodney with a small flat stern - that I think I'll remember .. only thing is I don't think I know any Rodneys!!

    Cheers - Hilary

  5. At first I thought it was a faded Irish flag. What's the dealie with that? Is it like the U.S. "Don't Tread On Me" flag?

  6. some of these are totally new to me. Great use of "R" words!

  7. I never knew there was a flag with pink in it. I like that.

  8. I've learned more new words from you since the A-Z started than I've learned in a life time. :) Thanks. I think I'll use the word rotted at myself if I don't get my bum off this computer chair and get on with the day.

  9. I dated a Rodney once. He was sleek... (=

  10. I do so enjoy your blogs! Today I am a rag moll, and I don't care who knows it.

  11. That's what I am... a rag moll!

  12. I think out of the ones you've done so far, this is the one I most needed translation for.

  13. Rotted is a perfect word! Thanks for that...
