Bad Bunny, Bad!
March 15th, 2002 - 12:21 a.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
Bunnies are evil. Especially stuffed bunnies that are all soft and chocolate-colored with mint green facial features and a matching ribbon around it's neck. The stuffed bunny forced me to buy it when I saw it in the bookstore tonight. Damn bunny. I'd show you a picture of it, but I can't find anyplace that lets me host things remotely anymore and that annoys me. But back to the bunny. The bunny is part of some evil conspiracy, I'm sure. Of course, I don't know *what* evil conspiracy, so I think I'll have to think about that one for awhile. I'm too tired to do it proper justice at the moment.
shenanigan (n. shuh-NAN-ih-gun)
1 : a devious trick used especially for an underhand purpose
2 a : tricky or questionable practices or conduct b : high-spirited or mischievous activity
The history of shenanigan is as tricky and mischievous as its meaning. Etymologists have tried to track down its derivation for years, but no one has succeeded. All we can say for certain is that the earliest known use of the word in print appeared in the April 25, 1855 issue of San Francisco's _Town Talk_. Although the devious trick sense of the word is older, the most common senses in use now are tricky or questionable practices (as in financial shenanigans and political shenanigans) and high-spirited behavior (as in youthful shenanigans). As you may have noticed, both of these currently popular senses are usually used in the plural.
Shenanigans isn't an Irish word? It seemed pretty Irish to me...I should've saved this word for a few days and used it for St. Patrick's Day.
