M y memory is that FEIST and FART are etymologically connected. At ANY RATE,
speaking experientially, the connection makes sense to me.
In one of the two conversations that I ever had with Raven McDavid, Jr.
(this one in an elevator), he talked about feist dogs and reminisced about
an old expression pronounced when someone farted: "Whew! That must've
been a feist dog"--or something like that.
OK, two days back, two posts, one on farts and one on fellatio--am I
cooking or what?
