Re: “Suddenlink Ups the Ante to $10K

Oh, i do wish people would stop using 'Nimrod" to mean idiot. When Bugs Bunny called Elmer Fudd "Nimrod", he was sarcastically calling him a great hunter "Nimrod (pron.: /?n?m.r?d/,[1] Hebrew: ?????????, Modern Nimrod Tiberian Nimr?? Aramaic: ?????? Arabic: ??????), king of Shinar, was, according to the Book of Genesis and Books of Chronicles, the son of Cush and great-grandson of Noah. He is depicted in the Tanakh as a man of power in the earth, and a mighty hunter. Extra-biblical traditions associating him with the Tower of Babel led to his reputation as a king who was rebellious against God. Several Mesopotamian ruins were given Nimrod's name by 8th century Arabs[2] (see Nimrud)." Not an idiot. Thank you.
