Why are cookies called cookies when you bake them not cook them?
Should they be called bakies?

Yes, indeed, so strange, Karl, :think:
Why do we park on driveways and drive on parkways? :think:

The English don't call them cookies. They call them biscuits. Are they more sensible than Americans? Remember that they eat Marmite.

Biscuit= "bis" twice and "cuit" cooked - from Latin. So maybe the British are no more sensible than Americans!

I do love a West Indian bake with saltfish, and the bake is actually FRIED!

If there is a coat of paint, why isn't there a vest of paint?

I want to keep Karl's Happy thread going in the spirit it was intended, but I have to take a brief break to say that I so envy you your Latin, Garnetgirl! Every time someone points out the Latin roots of a word, I start to see where French and Italian words I know came from in Latin. It makes me so angry that all my life I was unnecessarily ignorant about the origin of many English words, as well as words in many of the other European languages I have studied.

I remember being a kid watching those Red Lobster commercials about jumbo shrimp, thinking to myself, those shrimp aren't THAT big!

OH, and apparently, when I wanted to be picked up out of bed in the AM as a child, I would tell my parents that I was a JUMBO BABY! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks, Deb! I'm so old that I had to study Latin in school... =)

If olive oil is made from olives, and corn oil is made from corn, what is baby oil made from?

I guess this is a threadjack. I just saw it on another forum to which I belong, though, and it felt as if it belonged in a happy thread.

A real oldie, but no one has ever told me the answer: Why does your nose run and your feet smell?
