word origin:dunce

The term 'dunce' is derived from one of the most brilliant minds of the 14th Century.

John Duns Scotus was a philosopher and his followers were considered hairsplitters opposed to any change.

I don't know if I know anyone who "LIKES" change but then I don't really know anyone who really hates it either. It is sort of like a cold or a creppy relative.

We just try to deal with it.

Don't knock us dunces. Our hats are very aerodynamic, and we have a whole bus to ourselves. And why change? PG loves me for me.

Funny how these words come to be. Merci PG.

I wonder where the hat came from....

Terry: Change is good. Except when it's bad, cause then I don't like it.

P: That's right! I do!

Egan: I know. My brain is a mystery isn't it?

Bre: Good question. I will do some investigating on it. Maybe that's the type of hat his followers wore or something. Maybe it was a wizard hat back them?!?!?
