Here is a neat little game. Have you ever wondered where certain terms and words originated from? Most of us know that the term Your name is Mud originated from Dr. Samuel Mudd. He was the one who helped set the broken leg of Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth and he became "very unpopular".
He had no idea that Booth had just killed Lincoln and was unfairly convicted as a co-conspirator.
I will start with the word "hogwash." Hogwash has come to mean an untruth but what it really was nearly liquified kitchen scraps that were tossed into a pigpen for the pigs to eat.It means "worthless items".
If you have a term or a word origin, please feel free to post it here.
