Susie Dent's Weird Words

Like Horrible Histories but all about English. Daft cartoons, yucky jokes, cool quizzes. Wicked fun with words. Susie Dent from Countdown has something very funny to show you. Words do not mean what you think they do. And if you know what they really mean, you’ll hear people saying all sorts of funny things. You can even trick them into saying rude stuff – tee hee! Did you know that ‘fizzle’ once meant a silent fart? Or that ‘lasagne’ originally meant toilet? See what we mean? It’s genius, we say.
