Freddy The Freeloader

Laughter is not only the best medicine; it is also easier to swallow! Humor wraps around an unpleasant issue, and opens our eyes and hearts to truth. The insight of Will Rogers is recognized decades after his life and death. The unique talents of Red Skelton are copied but never duplicated!


Viewing Red Skelton’s television programs led to roaring laughter; and his many characters showed us the lighter side of life. One of my favorites, Freddy the freeloader depicted the life of a bum. Skits with Freddy and special guest stars most often resulted in missed lines on cue cards, and belly laughs from the viewing audience. He almost made the life of the homeless look desirable. He encountered a choice of working or loafing and picked number two!


What is a freeloader? I guess it describes a person looking for a free ride, living off the benefits of another’s hard work. He crashes parties, eats your appetizers, buffet meal and finest deserts. If there is a tab to be paid he is nowhere to be found!


It is all comical when portrayed by Freddy the Freeloader; but it is no laughing matter in real life. The Apostle Paul minced no words. “For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order; if anyone will not work, neither let him eat,
(2 Thessalonians 3:10 NAS).”


There are various causes for the homeless or unemployed; and we must not judge others too quickly. Helping hands extend to those who experience genuine need; but Freddy and his friends need to brush off the seats of their pants and look for work!
