Ploopy (known as Pootie in the online book) is a slur made up by Manny, who uses it as an insult to Greg as he takes his anger out on everyone.

History[]

The Last Straw[]

When he says it, Greg doesn't know what it means. He then asks Susan what "ploopy" means, who also asks, "WHAT IS A PLOOPY?" Manny uses the strange word to his advantage, calling Greg a ploopy to take his anger out on him.

One day at church, Greg decided to say it to Manny, and when he does, Manny begins to cry, and the Heffleys leave early in embarrassment. At home, Susan bans the word in the family, and nobody can say it, or they risk a week getting grounded. It is implied that this is a case where she is not making an exception even for Manny.

After it is banned, Rodrick finds a way to bypass the censoring by saying the words in separated parts during 3 different days: Pl-(Monday) oo-(Tuesday) py! (Wednesday), but Greg did not catch on until he hit the 3rd day.

When Manny knew he could insult Greg as much as he wants, he took advantage of it, with Manny telling Greg to pour his milk.[1]

When Rodrick finds out the word annoyed Greg, he started using it until Frank banned Rodrick from using it, but Rodrick quickly finds a loophole where he would only say parts of the word on separate days.[2]

Greg calls Manny a Pootie at church just for fun, which causes them to leave church early. Ann is much harsher towards Greg over calling Pootie to Manny, as she made him confess after church, and forces him to apologize to Manny, despite Manny being the main aggressor and calling Greg a Pootie in front of Ann, after Greg apologized.[3]

Trivia[]

  • In the online book, the word "pootie" is used instead and was first done by Manny unprovoked.
  • This might be what Manny uses for swears.
