Leaving the infantry trenches of 1914, the mood was lightened by some topical jokes and comedy songs, one involving a muck spreader, and another concerning a cross eyed
Mujica's gaffe was compounded by the fact the "cross eyed
man" in his slur was Fernandez's own late husband, who died of cancer in 2010.
For example, 'Gladly the cross eyed
bear,' or 'Nip a shepherd and run away.' Where as the word, 'Calvary' instead of 'Carvery' a mistaken word is a malapropism.
One headmistress called a subordinate a "cross eyed
insect" while another teacher sarcastically and angrily asked a group of colleagues to "shave off my mustache." Some behaviors went beyond such insults.
Paul Heaton released his first solo album The Cross Eyed
Rambler last month to critical acclaim and finished a successful tour on his own plus a string of festival dates.
