bull-simply

One part of the "Grapes of Wrath," that I found appealing was in chapter 20 when Tom is told about Floyd Knowles, and how he must "bull-simply" when he stumbles upon the police. How one must ramble and convince the police that you are just a blubbering fool and unthreatening.
This small part was humorous to me because how often do we do this in our own lives? I know that I have pulled the "I don't know what you are talking about" card plenty of times, to get myself out of trouble. Throughout high school, pretending that I didn't know when that we had homework; and even to get myself out of trouble saying that I didn't know that I was breaking any rules by staying out later than my curfew. To be honest, sometimes this works, and I found is pretty exciting that the concept could be found in a classic literary work.
