    Cool MAJOR HOOPLE

    MAJOR HOOPLE WAS A COMIC STRIP YEARS AGO.
    THE MAJOR WAS A BLOW-HARD-KNOW-IT-ALL.

    WAS THIS THE ORIGIN OF THE TERM "HOOPLE"???

    Cool

    The comic strip was called "Our Boarding House" and had a cast of characters that resided there. Come to think of it...a lot of the personalities fit those of firefighters to a "T"...it could have been called "Our Firehouse"!

    Major Amos Hoople was the head of the household....he wore a fez and came across as a blow hard know it all, but he had a heart of gold (sounds like someone everyone knows, doesn't it!)

    Major Amos: the original "Hoople!"
