The Meaning of Pluggers, part 13

Pluggers, 20150808:
Today, "Plugger" means "Teacher".

Really. That's all it's saying. If you are someone who, in your life, has learned things and, at some point, teach these things to others and they learn from you, you're a plugger.

That's the kinder interpretation, anyway. I read "Work hard and keep your nose clean" as a symbolic advice, a representation of generic basic learning, a summation of the fundamental things that people should learn along with the precepts of language. If we take it literally, it's the kind of toothless, content-free advice you'd expect from a discount fortune cookie or a robot programmed with conversational phrases but no actual understanding of human communication and they're making a joke at the expense of old people and their too often dissolving minds.

Your humble critic's plugger status: Positive
