Word Origins As Comics: What's Behind the Language We Are Forced to Endure Daily

We all love words. But their roots are often forgotten or paid little heed. Word origins have a story to tell in their own right, one which expands the impact of the word and creates an ancillary reality. Tired of a pedantic approach to the subject? You've come to the right place. We aim to both educate and entertain. From Book One of a series of fifteen books of educational comics by Larry Paros.

This is the eleventh column from that first book. Enjoy! Feel free to share your thoughts. Feedback and Pushback are encouraged.
