Subject: Interest in expletives?
Well, I didn't expect THIS much interest in swearing from this bunch, but I
love it! ;-)
I just assumed that Sam Hill was a gussying up of hell not unlike the term
Jeez or cheese and crackers. The English folk song is an intriguing lead, as
is the locomotive (I would call and ask the museum about this, if for no other
reason to listen to the tone of their voice when attempting to answer the
query!), but I can't buy the Joe Hill theory.
And while we're on this blaspheming kick, (sorry), but what does the H stand
for in the expletive, Jesus H. Christ?
I'll betcha never pondered THAT one did you? :-D
