Description
Want to know where the character of Bambi originated? (Hint -- it wasn't Disney!) Or are you dazed and confused about how this term came into use? And when did the Loch Ness Monster first show its nearly 20-foot self? Diverse, entertaining, and often unexpected, this thoroughly modern dictionary offers a unique blend of word and phrase etymology, cultural allusion, and general knowledge. It includes over 8,000 words, idioms, catchphrases, slogans, names and nicknames, big events, and titles of books, films, and TV shows. Even the language of computer technology is here, and many of the definitions are backed up with quotations from contemporary literature and the media. You'll get great scholarly information -- with generous helpings of sheer fun!
