Nickname: "Beanhulen" - pea-wrap, Penjumers were so poor that
they had to eat that.
"Moudekrûpers" - dustcrawlers
"Ulefellen" - sweets - refers to lack of energy of the Penjumers ("suertsjes"). The Society for Village Interests has done extensive research, but was not able to find the exact meaning of this nickname; the Penjumer Kindergarten therefore was baptized "De Ulefeltsjes".
"Âlde jongens" - bachelors - The Penjumers were too afraid to ask girls, the "suertsjes".
