The word sword comes from the Old English sweord, cognate to swert, "to wound, to cut".
The sword is symbolic of liberty and strength. In the Middle Ages, the sword was often used as a symbol of the word of God. The names given to many swords in mythology, literature, and history reflect the high prestige of the weapon and the wealth of the owner.
I promise you that I will not actually invest my time in this venture, but of course I had the idea yesterday that I could turn Sid into an international celebrity a la Grumpy Cat by calling him Cranky Sid. The only reason why I would want to do this is so I could have a calendar for him and then write captions in the voice of an old Jewish man. For example, a picture of another dog sniffing him with the caption, “What are you, my proctologist?” That’s it. Just hours and hours of writing one-liners for Sid. That would be my new job. You guys, I wake up like this.
- Since we first published this science, nothing about Sally has changed. Nothing. Sometimes, you talk to her and you’re about to say, “Sally, don’t you realize your body language indicates deep-seeded issues with commitment? Issues that spring from your own narcissistic fear of aging?” But then you just cross your arms (classic body language) and listen to her complain about how it’s too difficult to return a used dress to the department store.
