Wednesday Word of the Week


Okay, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but someone (Alan, you know who you are) suggested I did something for the word ‘guttersnipe’.

Well, the dictionary will tell you that guttersnipe means “1: a homeless vagabond and especially an outcast boy or girl in the streets of a city. 2 : a person of the lowest moral or economic station.”

I, however, always imagine the picture below whenever I see or hear the word. Poor little snipe in a gutter.
