Mo Hawg - Week 46


Day 1.

   Mo’s Sort of Skewed Wisdom: Bakers trade bread recipes on a knead-to-know basis.

   Mo’s Great Question for Today:  Why is it that no matter what color of bubble bath you use…the bubbles are always white?

   These are fun!  Mo’s friend, Susan P., from Lebanon, Tennessee sent a list of mergers expected this year.

   Watch for Polygram Records, Warner Brothers and Zesta Crackers join forces and become: Poly, Warner Cracker.

   Mo’s Wisdom: The one thing that unites all human beings regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers!

   More Mo’s Wisdom:  Your friends love you anyway.

Day 2.

   Mo’s Sort of Skewed Wisdom: Acupuncture is a jab well done.

   Mo’s Great Question for Today: On electric toasters, why do they engrave the message “one slice?”  How many pieces of bread  do they think people are really going to try to stuff in that slot?

   These are fun!  Mo’s friend, Susan P., from Lebanon, Tennessee sent a list of mergers expected this year.

   Watch for 3M to merge with Goodyear and issue forth as: MMMGood.

   Mo’s Wisdom: A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter or waitress is not a nice person.  (This is very important.  It never fails.)

   Mo’s Interesting Word for Today: “Atlas.”  We use it to mean a book of maps, plates and geographical information or a mountain range in Africa.  Where did that work come from?

   The Titan who bore the heavens on his shoulders was Atlas the Titan. His picture was on the front of the first book of maps, plates and geographical information….so, all books of that type, have been called “Atlas” ever since.

Day 3.

   Mo’s Things to Think About: There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.  English muffins were not invented in England or French fries in Franch.  Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat. 

   Mo’s Great Question for Today: Why is it that no plastic garbage bag will open from the end you first try?

   These are fun!  Mo’s friend, Susan P., from Lebanon, Tennessee sent a list of mergers expected this year.

   Watch for Zippo Manufacturing, Audi Motors, Dofasco and Dakota Mining will merge and become: ZipAudiDoDa.  (Mo’s favorite!)

   Mo’s Interesting Word for Today: Where did we get the name “amethyst” for the gorgeous bluish-violet quartz?

   It’s really true that the name of this quarts comes from the Greek words meaning antidrunkenness, as it was supposed to prevent intoxication. 

Day 4.

   Mo’s Things to Think About: Qucksand works slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.  Why is it that writers write but fingers don’t fing…grocers don’t groce and hammers don’t ham?  Mo was just wondering!

   Mo’s Great Question for Today: Considering all that lint you get in your dryer…If you kept drying your clothes would they eventually just disappear?

   These are fun!  Mo’s friend, Susan P., from Lebanon, Tennessee sent a list of mergers expected this year.

   Fairchild Electronics and Honeywell Computers will become: Fairwell Honeychild.

   Mo’s Interesting Word for Today.  “Mortgage” means a signed pledge as security for a debt, a conditional transfer to be canceled upon payment of an obligation.  Where did we get that word?

   Surprisingly, this comes from the old French mort or “dead” and “gage” which means a pledge.  In other words, when the debt is paid, the pledge is dead.

Day 5.

   Mo’s Things to Think About: If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of booth – beeth?  One goose, 2 geese.  So, shouldn’t it be one moose and two meese?  Doesn’t it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend?  If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them…what do you have left?  Is it an odd or an end?

   Mo’s Great Question for Today:  Is it true that the only difference between a yard sale and a trash pickup is how close to the road the stuff is placed?

  Mo’s Interesting Word for Today:  Most everyone enjoys mustard on a sandwich.  Where did a word like “mustard” come from? 

   Actually, when we enjoy mustard on something, we are reaching back in time…because the Romans made and enjoyed basically the same condiment we have today – made pretty much the same way.  The word comes from the Latin “mustum” which means “new Wine,” with which the condiment was always made.

  Mo loves it when you learn something!
