44. I know that the KKK loves him---

they love him so much that they endorsed a presidential candidate for the very first time in their history last year.

Does he chat them up on the telephone? Probably not, but he did seem pretty reluctant to disavow their endorsement. I can certainly read between the lines.

If you are unfamiliar with the song, though:

https://www.babycenter.com/0_lullaby-lyrics-lavenders-blue-dilly-dilly_6743.bc

Despite the link and references to it as a lullaby, it began its life as a folk song.

Without any reference to medieval times or any other specific historic period?

Sure read that way to me.

26. my point, if you read it, was that it would be viewed by the ignorant as a historical phrase.

It was not. It was a meaningless word that appears to have evolved over time in the song from "diddle" to "dilly"

27. I read it and quoted it in its entirety. It says the beer ad guys make up the "phrase" dilly dilly.

Only idiots would think otherwise.

Not a thing, said or implied, in your original post about medieval times or lords and ladies or whether or not the phrase was meaningful. You've sure added a lot to what that post actually said since I responded to that post with a link about the seventeenth century origins of "dilly dilly." BTW, since you did later bring it up, there were lords and ladies in the seventeenth century, not that that is relevant to the price of mead in Bath. And no one has a clue whether or not any of them went around saying dilly dilly. Odds are then new folks songs and nursery rhymes did get quoted then. Hell, we sure quote nursery rhymes and old and contemporary folk songs. Why wouldn't they have?

What you said and meant originally could hardly be more clear, so I do congratulate you on clarity. I cannot congratulate you, though, on the backpedaling you've done since I posted the wiki link.

35. And you believed them and claimed only the ignorant would think

it had been an actual historical "phrase."

(putting that in quotes only because I don't know if repeating one word = phrase.

Again, the entire post to which I originally replied read, in its entirety.

"15. That phase that the Ad guys made up, "Dilly Dilly" ,will lead to an ignorant new belief .....

that it was an actual historical phrase."

I don't know why you felt you had to defend that once, let alone again and again. You didn't know a seventh century folk song. No one knows everything. It's not that deep.

I don't know why message board posters find it so hard to post "I didn't know about that" or nothing at all and just move on.

36. the point was that people would believe that it was a phrase used in medieval times

It wasn't. It was an invention. Now ignorant people will believe that it was.

It was not even a word, even after its inclusion as a mispronounced sound in the folk song.

Diddly Diddly became Dilly Dilly over time....both were equally as meaningless.
It is not a historical phrase. Why can't you move on?

37. Could. Won't. Point is, you believed they made up "Dilly dilly," simply because you

didn't know better. Because you won't admit that, for whatever reason, you have been dancing around that truth since I posted the wiki link in response to your original post and, for whatever reason, you won't admit that, either or let it go.

38. They did make it up. In medieval times people did not toast each other with the phrase "Dilly Dilly"

Diddle Diddle was the expression in the original folk song.

39. "Dilly dilly," whether or not a corruption, has been around for decades or centuries, but

that's totally beside the point.

I'd love to know how you know about every seventeenth century rendition of the song, including by toddlers, though. Same darlings who instantly turn brother into bubba could easily have instantly turned diddle into dilly. But that's also beside the point.

The point is in my prior post.

Keep dancing around it, though!

48. no, but your obsession with the folk song that most people have never heard of has grown tiresome...

your unwillingness to acknowledge that dilly dilly was not used historically as a toast, which was my only point, makes conversation with you a waste of time.

If I had never heard of this folk song, and the ad guys had never heard of it either, it makes your point kind of foolish.

For all we know....dilly dilly might have been the name that Neanderthals used for their genitalia....but it would also have no connection to medieval toasts.

50. Apologies for assuming maturity. .You know the ad guys never heard of it? How?

There is not even a reason to assume that. And is your only basis for claiming most people never heard of it is that *you( never heard of it?

What you now claim was your only point in the post of yours to which I replied, "medieval toast" never appear anywhere in that post. Again, it said, in its entirety:


"15. That phase that the Ad guys made up, "Dilly Dilly" ,will lead to an ignorant new belief .....

that it was an actual historical phrase."

Not a thing about toasts. Not a thing about medieval times.

And this was my entire (lighthearted) original reply

"18. Damn those 17th century ad guys to hell for that deception, say I!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavender%27s_Blue

Same for those lullaby assholes." (video of lullably)

You could have said, "Never heard of it." or nothing at all.

BTW, I have zero obsession with the song. Hadn't thought about it since childhood. Just happened to know that KNOWING that""dilly dilly" was indeed "an actual historical phrase." was the opposite of ignorant, which made your claim about ignorance ironic. What I have been enjoying is your refusal to admit that dilly dilly was indeed a historical phrase of which you were ignorant.

BTW, not talking to me. is super easy For one thing, I very rarely reply to the same post twice. Don't want another reply? Don't keep posting back to me. In fact, I expressly suggested you either admit your error or just let it go. *You* chose to keep going, though. Or, you could put me on ignore, with or without one of those huffy announcements..

53. unless you have proof that they are liars....they directly stated that they made it up.

your obsession with "an actual historical phrase." is what makes you look foolish

you do understand language in context, don't you?

Obviously, my concern was that people would believe that they used the phrase as a toast in medieval times and would see it as history.
They might pass on that misconception to their children.

However, Feel free to bask in the glow of your superior knowledge and my ignorance of the folk song...I stand corrected of the literal incorrectness of my statement.

Or did you just want to see how many personal insults you could pack into one post?

No, it must be my fault. No clue how, but it must be.

BTW, did Did "most people" also claim they never heard of it, too? If so, do I, for some weird reason have to prove most people lied?

And again, not obsessed with the song, or basking in anything. Just observing your antics.
