(Metaphorical Phrasal-Noun)

Lame Excuse 001 - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

This Is True

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!he Phrase (a) “Lame Excuse” is a Metaphorical Phrasal-Noun.  It is NOT Idiomatic as many people might believe.  In fact MOST of the Phrases that people wrongly refer to as “Idioms” — are actually Metaphorical.  Allow me to demonstrate.

The Meaning Of “Lame Excuse”

Lame:  [Adjective]

      1.  Crippled or physically disabled;  Especially in the foot or leg, so-as to limp or walk with difficulty.
      2.  Impaired or disabled through defect or injury:  “A lame arm”
      3.  Weak;  Inadequate;  Not Satisfactory;  Clumsy:  “A lame excuse”

Traditionally — someone who was born with a Club Foot (a foot which deformed and twisted — making standing and walking very difficult), was considered to be “Born Lame”.

Excuse:  [Abstract Noun]

      1.  An explanation which is offered as a reason for being excused from blame for something.
      2.  A plea offered in extenuation of fault or release from obligation, promise, etc.:  “His excuse was valid.”

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!o basically — if someone offers you an excuse for:  being late, not doing something they were supposed to do, or something like that — and that excuse was so weak and ineffectual that it was almost like a person with a Club Foot trying to stand on his or her own — then that excuse is LAME!!!.

Origin Of The Phrase:

(Not Known)

Youre Kidding Me - GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!

The Phrase Is So Old That No One Could Really Say For Sure Where It Originated From



| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!his Phrase is fairly safe to use — even in this time where so many people seem to be offended by EVERYTHING!!!  In fact — those people probably even use this phrase.  But if they found out that the Metaphor comes from a disability — then they would probably think it is offensive…  But that is their problem.

| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!he reason that I say that is because it is so incredibly rare for people to be “lame” these days.  I was actually born with a club-foot (and my name even means “The Lame One” — so I can use it however I want!)  😀  But that “Lameness” was fixed immediately after my birth.  Also — we no-longer use that term for when a person has a disability.  Instead we use the name of that dis-ability.



| GiveMeSomeEnglish!!!ltimately it does not even matter.  Because even if a person DID think it was derogatory — if that person gave you a “Lame Excuse” for something — then you should let them know immediately.  Because people like that need to know that their behavior if NOT acceptable.
