Where the names Froopert and Frooples came from.

As you may or may not know, I call my sister Froopert. Years ago, we used to look at this ODD cartoon that I think was called "Rupert the dancing grouper."

It was about Rupert, a grouper who would leave his bowl and dance and then inevitably die.

But the song was hilarious! They stress on the name 'Rupert' and it came out as
" Roooo-perrrrrt".
So naturally, I had to call my baby sister "Froooo-perrrt".

Not to be outdone by me, she came up with "Frooples".
Why Frooples and not, say, Froopat or Froopit etc. you ask? Because, she said, it rhymes with "scruples".

Such genius is without compare.

The "gyul.pus" was explained here - "The Origins of Gyul.Pus"

The photo is of my baby "Rainbow the bear" posing on my desk with a cup of Froop yoghurt. I bought it because of the name, and I will not be buying it again because of the taste.

Are you a Grenadian by chance? Because the slang doesn't strike me as Trinidadian.
Well it's good to know our reader base is branching out.

If I was able to understand what you said in your comments, I would be able to give a better reply.

As it is, I strongly suspect that you are crossing the line like 95% of our readers.

Kindly cease and desist.

Ah go cease and desis when yu agree to go out wit meh.

That was the funniest thing I heard all day...
We need jokers like you on this blog.
Having to fend off stalkers left, right and center is getting to be tiring.

As funny as your little quip was, I will NOT be going out with you.

But if you intend on making our blog so lively with your idiotic and undecipherable comments until I go out with you, then I'll say:
"Oh Lovabwoy, you MIGHT make me change meh mind, and I MIGHT go out with you, but I have to get to know you better."

See yah around!!

Listen! Lovabwoy, I think that you should stop bothering Frooples. She's doing her best to explain names here so that we can follow their roots. So stop trying to pick up people here. This is not a dating site.

Frooples & Froopert said...
