Musing on my way to work recently, I got caught up with the word "spatula". Yes. Spatula. I thought, "What an odd word. Is it Spanish?" Then I said "Spatula" out loud in every type of accent I could muster.
"Spot U Lah"
"Spaaaat ur lah"
"Spet oo la"
This caroomed around in my bean the entire drive, so I had to Google it. Apparently, Spatula is from the Late Latin and was first found used in 1525. It has something to do with epaulets.
Hmmmm. Epaulets.....ep PAUL ettes.....eee poo leets...
