RDP Wednesday: Orgulous

chickens-22.06-1

Is this an orgulous chicken, no idea. Until today I had no idea that the word existed. German is the language of the part of the country where I live (Switzerland) so I was curious to see how that would  be translated and guess what. For lack of a better word it says “arrogant” and now I understand what it is all about. It could of course be a rooster with such a bunch of tail feathers and then he probably would be orgulous, having a harem of hens to look after.

I just had a flash on my news reader (on my iPhone) just now. The Swiss are testing a new boarding method on planes: passengers with a seat on the corridor are to be the last ones to board the plane. Those at the window are the superior ones, the orgulous that look down on the others. They go first and can push all the others to one side, board the plane and make themselves comfortable. Then we have those that sit in the middle seat if it is a three seat joined row. They are neither to be orgulous or humble if that is the correct word. Perhaps a word exists for that as well. Just imagine I checked on the computer for the antonym of orgulous and they do not have one.  So those occupying the middle seat get looked down upon by those occupying  the window seat, and those in the corridor have already been reduced to the insignificant.

And the arrogant orgulous chicken trots on and ignores everyone.
