I was reading in the BIG BOOK and reached “r” and then “re” and then “red”. I was surprised at how many phrases or words start with “red”. So, how many words or phrases start with “red”. The winner gets bragging rights once again. I invested everything with Madoff.

Here’s one “I BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW”.

“Discovering in his mouth a tongue
He must

his palaver balk;
So keeps it running all day long,
And fancies his red rag can talk.”

Red Rag (The). The tongue. In French, Le chiffon rouge; and balancer le chiffon means to prate.

  4. Sunn,

    Red Ranger or Red Rider BB Gun??

  5. Sunn: I bow to the superior Intellect. Mainly because I can’t believe I didn’t think of My former Home away from Home/Bank The Red Dog Saloon.

  6. I believe you’re right, anon. This was from the classic Christmas movie (the title escapes me at the moment). BTW,as a child, how many other things were there that would put your eye out?

  7. J.J., the Red Dog was that the first one that came to mind. I wonder why? Maybe a Freudian thing.

  8. Things that mom said would put your eye out: sticks, rocks, and “don’t shove beans up your nose”. But, we’re getting off track.

  9. You know, At one time the Red Dog was going to name a new wing after me. Lord knows I paid for several renovations.
    I thought of another one
    Red Line: (The Maximum RPM one can rev an engine to before damage)

  10. Oh yeah, The name of the movie was “A Christmas Story”

  11. My buddies & I always thought we were doing a good deed. Helping young women pay their way through college.

  12. That’s as good as any excuse I ever used.
