Mrs Eyebrows

Yaxlich had to head into his local Big Town today. When he was there he saw Mrs Eyebrows. It looks like she's got a job for the local council. Either that or it's a new fashion to wear bright flourescent tabards with the name of your local government authority written on the back.

Tabard. A sadly underused word. He thinks he might use it more often.

Tabard, an anagram of bastard, but without the S.

 

Blogger Guyana-Gyal said ... (6:19 pm) : 

I can just hear Yaxlich at the Veg. Soup Place. "You...you...bunch of tabards!"

 

Blogger john.g. said ... (7:23 pm) : 

GG, nice one!

 

Anonymous Wendy A said ... (9:12 pm) : 

Or even "You...you...Bad Rat!"

Local elections scare me. The sort of people they get to help out really shouldn't be let out in public.

 

Blogger Ariel said ... (2:33 am) : 

Very fetching by the sound of it. Might Yaxlich be angling for his very own tabard?

this *working* thing is getting in the way of your blogging, yax.

 

Blogger Mr. X said ... (9:24 am) : 

'Epaulette' is also an underused word. So is 'Jerkin'. Although the latter probably deserves it.

 

Anonymous sablonneuse said ... (2:21 pm) : 

Will you soon be posting a photo of neatly folded tabards beside your pants?

it was t'bard's birthday the other day with great celebrations and such like. did you know that he died on his birthday? maybe he choked on cake.

 

Blogger Jim McKee said ... (4:36 pm) : 

I thought it was the dyslexic version of "batard".

But what is a batard?

Why, the leotard that Batman wears, of course.

;-]

Jim - No, no! It's when a cricketer hits the ball a long way.

 

Blogger Wendz said ... (12:51 pm) : 

The only tabard I know is the stuff we used to smear all over our bods to repel mosquitos...it's very stinky and sticky. But it does work rather well.

Quite like Jim's definition though - it made me snort.

 

Blogger Yaxlich said ... (2:20 pm) : 

John G - It's also an anagram for dart board. Almost.

GG - If only he'd known this at the time, he would most certainly have used it for those times when they froze his money because they thought he was a Taxi Vader.

Wendy A - Maybe "ta bard" is what people used to say when William Shakespeare gave them a copy of one of his plays.

Iggy - A Chinese girl once told Yaxlich that she didn't like big elections either. Apparently they hurt.

Ariel - He might have to look into purchasing a limited edition Yaxlich tabard. He can't decide which would look best, though. Flourescent orange or day glo yellow.

Anonymous - Sadly you are correct.

Mr X - A tabard with epaulettes would surely be the ultimate in high fashion. He's not a fan of jerkin. It makes you go blind.

Sablonneuse - Once he has decided what colour tabard to buy, a photo will be forthcoming.

Rivergirlie - Yaxlich thinks it's sad that t'bard died on his own birthday. He would have spent all year looking forward to it too. Wondering whether Anne Hathaway had taken all of his subtle hints about wanting a new quill this year. Toying with the idea of getting his beard trimmed at Ye Olde Barbers Shoppe. It seems such a shame.

Jim & Grumpy - Yaxlich thanks you for making him snigger. Incidentally, Jim & Grumpy sounds like a great name for a cartoon series.

Wendz - Welcome back to the World of Yaxlich. He has missed you.

 

Blogger Sally Lomax said ... (6:37 pm) : 

Tabard and eyebrows! What hope is there for the poor woman?!

 

Blogger Yaxlich said ... (11:23 am) : 

She's probably got someone to take to a wedding...*sigh*
