Alright, I've been lurking around on this board for nearly a year now and have become vaguely familiar with most of the words and phrases in the CP lexicon. I'm intrigued by one in particular, though:

nuthooks

Apparently, this beauty of a word is native to CP, as most Google searches just lead back to here or other Chiefs sites. So help a n00b out - where in the world did this gem of a word come from?

If we told you we'd have to kill you. We'd use nuthooks to do it.

Hmm...sounds like a rough way to go. If that's the case, I'll just have to spend the rest of my life wondering...

The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft the nuthooks from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Cochise, was to carry the nuthooks.

I brought the term here and threatened Hoover with the device after he posted a false signing.

Actually,
RRWNJs also appears to be native to CP. RWNJs was used elsewhere, but the RR version appears to be our own. I could be wrong, though...

You can't expect to wield the nuthooks just because some watery tart threw them at you. :harumph:

This is just a thread where you mention originating it. Do you have a link to the original thread itself? Just curious.

I've looked around, but a search for "nuthooks" in the archives comes up empty. :shrug:

Yeah, bogus postings of Athan-like proportions back in the early days drew much ire and threats of stringing up the poster by the nads. Lattimer coined the term nuthook to bring extra pain to the job of stringing one by the nads for impersonating Nick Athan.

I think the term is actually an Eskimo word for snow.

This was back in 2001/2002 or so.. Don't think they go back that far.

Gotcha. Well, kudos for coining such a term. I'll have to intregrate it into my everyday language. :D

I mean, if I went 'round saying I was Endelt just because some moistened bint had lobbed a nuthook-itar at me, they'd put me away!

Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' nuthooks is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcicial aquatic ceremony!

Cochise: Be quiet!

Oh but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a nuthook at you!
