Researching First Fury, provided some side benefits. One was that it answered questions I never knew I had; but, after the research, I knew I should have asked. Did you ever wonder about where these came from?
- Why is the toilet sometimes called a “head”?
- Why are office rumors sometimes referred to as “scuttlebutt”?
- Why is a hard time sometimes called “trying”?
- Why do some people refer to discarding something as “deep sixing” it?
- Why do some people yell “shake a leg” to motivate someone to move faster?
- Where does the term “son of a gun” come from?
- When someone is not making sense, why are they sometimes said to have “three sheets to the wind”?
- Why would someone dressed poorly be called a “clod hopper”?
