Twiglet #236

A twiglet’s aim is to “prompt” a thought. If something comes to mind, write. A polished piece isn’t the goal; creativity is. Leave a link, if you’d like your work read, but comments should not be expected.

    The Last Word

    in the Oxford English Dictionary
    is zyzzyva and its etymology is
    unknown. A South American weevil
    discovered and named by a man
    who might have used it as
    onomatopoeia or as a clever joke
    meant to be the last word in the OED.
    And it is.

    1. Debi – I find it interesting when they name new cars that they do actually search out meanings in other languages too. Sometimes though like wall paint, nail polish and lipstick I wonder where some of the names come from.

      I actually have an old Webster’s Unabridged and the last word in it is zythum// “Zythum, or sisni was a malt beer made in ancient Egypt” – Wiki
