A MIDGE TOO FAR

Most Irish people have trouble with the word midges, those tiny biting flies, and most people here call them midgets which can result in some weird mind pictures. The word midget came from the word midge and was popularized by P.T. Barnum and his acolyte Tom Thumb and many came to see it as connecting smaller people to freak shows and circuses. Apologies if anyone’s offended.

Midges at least should know better than to complain as it turns out they are very bad at spelling anyway…
