Har!


funny word of the day: scallywag

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

scal·a·wag
Variant(s): or scal·ly·wag \ˈska-li-ˌwag\
Function: noun
Etymology: origin unknown
Date: circa 1848

1 : scamp, reprobate
2 : a white Southerner acting in support of the reconstruction governments after the American Civil War often for private gain


I think scallywag can also be used to refer to a pirate. I learned this word from a song about pirates that I hear on the Toddles Tunes station on my TV that I now listen to every day with Emma. What has become of my life?

A Long Hiatus...
