Fergus: deriving from the Gaelic Feargus;
Composed of Fear meaning Man
And Gus meaning Force.
Fergus the Man. Fergus the Force.
Fergus the Man Force.
The man in the force man. The five foot fourman.
The wannabe hobbit listening to the scoreman.
The Tinderman. The bakerman.
The try to get them in to bed with a poorly cooked sauceman.
The one-haired chestman. The dinosaur fanman.
The retired skaterman come expert on Daliman.
The son of an Irishman. With the voice of a Radio 4man.
The when you really think about it he’s really quite peculiarman.
The birthdayman. The lovelyman.
The dearest friend loved a lot by Jocelynman.
