Manly Minute: 5 Old-Fashioned Insults
Clothing fashions have a way of cycling in and out of popularity. When the sun sets on popular slang, it tends to remain buried forever. This isn’t always a bad thing.

If someone we meet or are apprised of in the news conducts themselves in an objectionable way, what words do we have at our disposable to call them? Jerk? Knucklehead?
