The word bootleg (anything that is not strictly legitimate like alcohol or a load of CDs off a market stall and sold at a lower price than recommended), comes from the time of smuggling in places like Cornwall, when the smugglers wore large boots and hid bottles of alcohol(which they just happened to pilfer by nefarious means) literally in their boots, hence known as bootleggers, to get past the customs of the time. Nowadays it is anything gained by criminal means from said market stall to a robbery from a lorry like alcohol or cigarettes, and also illegal downloads of music, films etc.

My high school's athletic teams are called "Marauders." Our arch rivals are the "Crusaders." (If you're from the WNY area, you know of which schools I speak of.)

Did you know that the World Cup was won twice by a British team? Back in the early 1900s the cup was created by Sir Thomas Lipton, the tea magnate and he commissioned a World Cup trophy to played for by Italy, Germany, England etc. A little known team was gathered together made up of miners from West Auckland who took part and won it twice. However, it is believed that the more well-known team Woolwich Arsenal should have taken part, but because they had the initials West Auckland were asked instead. I seem to recall this was dramatised by either ITV or Channel 4 starring Dennis Waterman.

Sorry, GM, are you saying that West Auckland twice won the World Cup????

Coming from West Auckland myself, that seems unlikely (even if we can boast Wolf from Gladiators).

New Zealanders like to point out that we didn't lose a single game in the last world cup, but I can't see a Westie team of miners from the 1900s beating anyone.

1909 and 1911 Gailfan. They won it fair and square and didn't pinch it (though as Durham lads it would have been in their blood to do so).

Yes I wasn't aware that you would get mixed up with your country and ours GailFan, sorry about that. We have towns and cities here that named after others like Boston and Wellington and many others, so I can see how the confusion arose with West Auckland. Apologies but haroldeye had explained further.

Default Hooker's Girls...

The modern word "hooker" which today of course is applied to prostitutes, had its origins in the American Civil War.

General Joseph Hooker, commander of the Army of the Potomac in early 1863, was notorious for soliciting the services of prostitutes whenever he and his staff were on leave near Washington, D.C. The general and his inner circle were so notorious for their visits to the brothels, that the prostitutes that serviced them became known as "Hooker's Girls", which was a nickname that was perhaps first coined by the common soldiers of his army.

This was later shortened to simply "Hookers". The word stuck.

Don't forget that you can also have a hooker in Rugby-one who 'hooks' the ball to the side out to his fellow player-wonder where that originated.?
