    I listened to his show on Monday night, and I was very impressed.
    Bernard is a very well spoken man, with very intelligent conversations (Purdue)and of course..funny as hell.

    What's the first thing they say when they talk about Colin Powell? What's their compliment? He's well-spoken. Well-spoken is not a compliment. Well-spoken is something you say about people you don't expect to be able to speak. How do they expect Colin Powell to sound? Like, "I'm gonna drop me a bomb today!" - Chris Rock

    I wish I could rep you 200 times.

    I have lost count of the number of people who have told me over my professional career how "well spoken" and "poised" I was. Give me a break. I'm sure not all of those people meant any harm, but, you are correct, being called "well spoken" isn't a compliment.

    It's like telling someone 'gee, you're not a complete *****!' :)

    It's really them saying "Hey, you're smarter than you look!"





    But, there are a number of people that mean it as a compliment, such as "He is a polite, well spoken young man"

    After Bernard's relatively minor slip-up last Sunday, I think well spoken is implied as a compliment in this regard.

    Maybe to you but many people mean it as an actual compliment, I would say most the time. "Well spoken" has always been used this way, never as a way to inflict harm. Makes me think what other compliments you take offensive lol. :thinking:

    Well spoken is a compliment.

    It's not that you expect someone to be a complete doofus...

    It just means that they are well spoken...

    Everyone cannot speak well...Even people who don't speak poorly are not necessarily well spoken...

    i'm never described as well spoken, it's usually "he has a nice personality". :thinking:

    If 'EFF YOU MOTHER-EFFER' isn't well-spoken, I don't know what is.

    WTF? Since when has being called "well spoken" actually a bad thing? To me it means that you have good presence think through your thoughts, formulate a response and respond with a well thought out comment that's on target. Instead of just dropping whatever you feel like you want to say and making an ass out of yourself, aka Randy Moss..

    sigh.. I wish this country would go backwards to people that had manners, slow down life, and in general get back to values.. )(*#()$@ I must be getting old if I'm thinking this way..

    You should of put the first part in quotes too. You got it from the show The League.

    Yes, it should have all been in quotes, but I figured it was such a well known Chris Rock bit that it didn't require the additional quotes especially when I noted it was Chris Rock. Can't tell you what "The League" is, never seen it, but I got it from his stand up act.

    "The League" is a show on FX about a group of guys that play fantasy football. Your prior post was almost word for word what was said on that show last week.
