Word Origins as Comics: What Conversation, Poetry, and Advertising Share in Common

Tired of a pedantic approach to word origins? Try this for size. Our goal is to both educate and entertain. There's no better place to begin than with the language we use. So let's start there. Book One of fifteen books of educational comics by Larry Paros.

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