Hi, I'm Gormy Cuss.

That name? It's a Maine thing. It means a well-intended person who sometimes acts like a bull in a china shop.

4. Maine's beautiful especially in the summer, fall, and winter.

Spring's mud season. Not so nice. I don't live there anymore but visit if you can. The coasts and the mountains are worth the trip.

7. Ever seen the Mythbusters epsiode about a bull in a china shop?

Turns out, that saying is busted. Although the Mythbusters got a little alarmed, the bulls didn't break a thing. So maybe you're alarming, but not actually harmful.

8. !

Here's an example of usage from "Maine Lingo" by John Gould"

"Ain't he the boy broke your plow, smashed your cart, lost the forty-quart can down the well, and got your Edie in a family way?"

"Ayeh."

"Gormy cuss, ain't he?"

11. Gormy Cuss, hello!

Hi,
Thanks for the explanation of the nick, learned something new. I would get strange looks using that around here though.

Peace
