UNBELIEVABLE

Websters dictionary has defined the word 'Gullible' as "One who is practised in the ancient art of bodging (making spindles for chairs and stools)"
Who knew??

Websters spelled it "practised?" One would have to be bodger to believe that.

Garrybl, I am not gullible enough to believe your claim. Surely your dictionary defines gullible.

I've been fleeced! Now where's my wallet?

And I knew exactly what it meant...thought it might have been some archaic thing, apparently there's some swamp land somewhere...

Ricksdusa....
In my dictionary, the word that follows "gullible"
is "gully" which is defined as a type of knife.
I believe that your eyes may have misaligned, and
thus - you may have thought that gullible means
"a knife used in the craft of bodging...."
It's OK. Anyone could make that mistake....
