Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I have been barraged with questions about the word "igmo". Many have asked, "So Joe Offer is no igmo; exactly what is it he isn't?"
I am happy to be of help to my fellow citizens of planet earth. However, you could have just as easily asked Little Hawk, I am certain he would have given you exactly the same info that I now offer.
"Igmo" is a word coined by the great, late Harry Lee Wigley (whom I knew personally!). He developed the use of the word to honor TV actor and strongman, Luther Igmo, who played as a strange green monster in a 1970's TV show.
The actual meaning of the word is "a dullard, one who is mentally sluggish, a stupid or bovine person."
Of course, Mr. Wigley was not using it in reference to Luther Igmo, instead he referred to the monster that Igmo played on TV.
Therefore, you now know exactly what it is Joe Offer isn't!
