Hog On Ice & Other Books By C.E. Funk
There is no better argument for why copyright should be limited to 25 years than this series of books. This series is a classic of popular etymology, now woefully out of date and kept alive in reprints by greedy publishers willing to take money from a public that does not suspect that this book is no longer relevant.
