:: RT: Learn about Tom the daft whore ▶ https://goo.gl/iMdi9z ◀ "We all liked Tom. He was a sad, daft whore - a happy clever cretin who we all agreed was above reproach in every respect. Tom had no neighbours and lived in a town with his unmarried sister, Mary, a wife of nearly thirty years" (Burridge 2004, pag. 48). | #English #Language #EnglishHistory #OldEnglish #Podcast #History #Meanings


"A vegetarian teetotaller, Tom ate meat and drank liquor most days. He was a silly and a wise boor, and everyone really liked him. He was just so buxom. Now I often used to see Tom feeding nuts to the deer that lived in the branches of an old apple tree. But no more. Sadly Tom starved from overeating last year. So we buried him beneath that old apple tree. I remember well, it was full of pears at the time." (Burridge 2004, pag. 48)
