Here is something interesting…..

I ran across an article, "Everyday Phrases with Surprising Dark Origins" on about everyday words or phrases that we use with their origins. Some of the phrases are:

Mad as a Hatter
Meet a Deadline
God Bless You
Crocodile Tears
Pulling my Leg
and my favorite: A Snafu

There are 10 others. In this day of political and social awareness a few of them should never be used, (I believe) due to their despicable origins. I will use this new knowledge to become a more enlightened and sensitive person.
