Ok, three unicorns is not a planet *full* of unicorns. A whole planet, and only three unicorns. That kid got gypped.The etymology of the word "gypped" is fairly derogatory. It's kindof like the word "niggardly".
when did jerry become a an english scholar.maybe they should rename that book to 'the professor and the math man'i dont even know how to stop.
Except that "niggardly" has nothing to do with Black people being cheap, and "gypped" is completely based on the notions that Gypsies steal from people (which I'm sure isn't true of all Gypsies.) But I find it interesting that stealing from "others" tends to be universally acceptable in nomadic cultures like Gypsies and Bedouins. So, Professor, how is gypped like niggardly exactly?
It really isn't at all like niggardly (Gardner, C.J.E.A, English Good, penultimate paragraph).Gypped is based on gypsies cheating people out of stuff or just stealing from them. It's like saying, "Don't you Jew me, you bastard."Niggardly is probably based on a Swedish word "hnøggr" that means stingy, which I had to cut and paste, since I don't have a key on the keyboard for o with a line through it. Buy a vowel, Sweden. It doesn't have anything to do with black people, nor is it even rooted in a word for blackness like "negro" or "noir".win-win, Goldie.
"Planet Unicorn, hey..."That shit has been stuck in my head for a while now. And a crying troll? And the trees die when he stops crying? So the unicorns start dissing him? Whoever made that is the next Shakespeare. What inventiveness!
