Jackanapes: Bill O'Reilly's Word of the Day on Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor

OMG, There are Jackanapes in My Own Family!

My cute little great-niece Sami Jo loves frogs and just might be a little Jackanapes!  (The word Jackanapes appears to be both singular and plural).

Izzy and Jaynie - two little jackanapes!  In this case, jackanapes means a "mischievous child", and I know for a fact that these two should have their picture in the dictionary next to the word. (They are my granddaughters).

  • Today, Bill O'Reilly's "word of the day" was Jackanapes, which has a few different meanings. Sometimes it refers to a mischievous child (see photos on the right); sometimes it refers to a conceited fellow (see photo below); and sometimes it just means an ape.
  • Now, if you don't know who Bill O'Reilly is, then you've been living under the same rock with the Geico commercial guys. He is the main man on Fox News Channel and host of the nightly show called "The O'Reilly Factor." Gosh, why do I feel stupid having to put that in this article.
  • There's probably no one alive who doesn't know who Bill O'Reilly is! Every day, however, at the end of his show he throws in a "word of the day" that probably no one in his/her right mind would know, so I have taken it upon myself to do a hub every day on his word of the day with as much information on the word as I can possibly find.
  • Sure, you could just go to the dictionary and look the word up, but would you REALLY know what it meant? Read my hubs and I'll bet you end up knowing waaaay more than you ever wanted to know about those crazy words from Bill O'Reilly.
  • Do not be a jackanapes when writing to The Factor (or when viewing this website), but do check out Bill O'Reilly's website where he sells a lot of great merchandise and gives the money to charity. Good job, Bill! Here's the link:

Charlie Sheen Is a Jackanapes?

Can anyone remember back to a time when we thought Charlie Sheen was "normal?"  Nope, he's just a jackanapes (an impudent or conceited fellow).

Surely you knew this guy was a jackanapes!

...and sometimes a jackanapes is just a monkey or an ape.
