And then the Cricket began chirping…….

We had some holiday week developments in the Louisiana Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association scandal as Cindy “Cricket” Romero agreed to chirp about her sister-in-law Mona and Sean Alfortish per David Hammer’s T-P story from last Wednesday. We are interested in this case for 2 reasons, one being that everyone seemingly knows Alfortish due to his sometimes outlandish personal behavior beyond what Team Letten listed in their indictment.

The T-P editorial board put in their 2 cents the next day on this topic. From the looks of it, the noose around Alfortish’s balls is tightening.

  1. The commonly accepted English usage of the word ‘cricket’ can be defined as:

    cricket 1 |?krikit|
    an insect related to the grasshoppers.

    cricket 2 |?kr?k1t| |?kr?k?t|
    an open-air game played on a large grass field with ball, bats, and two wickets, between teams of eleven players, the object of the game being to score more runs than the opposition.

    cricket 3
    a low stool, typically with a rectangular or oval seat and four legs splayed.

    So was “Cricket” playing a game with our romeo Alfortish, ? Only to find out her sister-in-law Mona ‘needa’ Bona was bending over a stool, hunched up like a grasshopper, awaiting their romeo who would then produce the characteristic rhythmical chirping sound as they planned their next vacation to attend Cricket Matches in the Bahamas…Aruba or where ever the money would allow !

    Here are some comments I culled through that may help understand, if at all possible, why anyone (relative or friend) would name or nickname an innocent child Cricket:

    “Well as a nickname it looks original and unusual, but it makes me think of a short and skinny girl…”

    “I would think somebody watches a little too much Young and the Restless…”

    “Used by New South Wales people as a derogatory term in the same way the Americans use the phrase in the Deep South…Cockroach !”

    Hmmmmmm…the ‘New South’, and particularly Jefferson Parish, must be the experimental breeding ground where a cockroach crosses a cricket without success of mutation. How would Darwin describe this failure…Survival of the the Chirpiest ?
