Why do we call rabbits bunnies?
Several months ago I started hearing in the media the term ‘like putting lipstick on a pig’. I understand the meaning but wondered about the history.
The new term I have heard in the media is one that expresses disgust. ‘Throw up in my mouth’. Or, ‘Does that make you have throw up in your mouth’?(I watch MSNBC in the morning-maybe I should change the channel...). I find this terminology offensive.
I am a new member-just ran across this website this morning. I have no idea if what I have posted here is appropriate. Nothing like jumping in with both feet…
I enjoy words and the history/meaning behind them.
