    Default To Jerryw-- "Blockhead" post

    Why is it a negative term, you ask? Going back to the Charlie Brown days.... Charlie Brown was pretty much considered a born loser in life. So Sally said as she duped him time and time again w/ the football kick off. Talk about a guy w/ a low level of self confidence!

    A google brought this up also:
    blockhead
    A vintage insult commonly used by older generations. Commonly directed towards anyone that demonstrates low intelligence or more specifically, very low common sence (sense). Grandfathers and Great-Grandfathers of 60's to 90's born generations would utilize this word.
    You're such a blockhead, Charlie Brown!

    It was Lucy pulling the football away. Sally is CB's brother.

    No, just someone looking for a nice looking dog who could hunt, but used the term "blockhead"... I hope he didn't think he was beat up. There are some nice all around breeders in TX who I hope can help him out but his post was moved to the ads forum by the moderators.

    Not beat up just amused by all the comments. I guess some folks have more time on their hands than others and need something to chirp about. But, I would appreciate knowing about a started dog or puppies with great retrieving instincts that is also built with a stocky chest and big head. Prefer yellow or black.

    Advertising for litters/dogs, whether for sale or wanted, does not belong on the main forum of RTF. There are specific forums for such classified ads. jerryw's "ad" was moved to the appropriate classified forum.
