Just a minute. My apartment has been invaded by Rowan Atkinson!

POPIK: Get out of here, Bean!! You missed your cue!! I did "Bean Town" two

etymologies ago!!

Sorry. Good thing that guy doesn't talk! On to "nuts."

The RHHDAS has a very large "nut(s)" entry. I posted the song "I'm a Nut"

a few months ago. This is from the New-York Commercial Advertiser, 15

September 1871, pg. 2, col. 3:

The exposure of the spoliations committed by the carpet-bag governments

in some of the Southern States is "nuts" for the Richmond _Whig_. And the

worst of it is, that it can with such perfect confidence, defy the President

to crack them.
