Ask Mr. Knowitall......

If it's Wednesday...It must be time for "Ask Mr. Knowitall"

A Mr. Snoop Dog of Alpo New Jersey asks...Dear Mr. Kazizzle....
What be the 'tip' on the Dog Days??

Dear Mr. Dog...If you are referring to the hottest days of Summer...
The Ancient Romans believed that there was a period during the Summer when the brightest star in the heavens, the dog star 'Sirius', added it's heat to the Sun's heat, making it even hotter!
A veritable 'inferno' if you will.

A Mr Mickey Spillane of Bayonne New Jersey asks...Dear Mr. Knowitall...
Does any of you'se guys knows where da expression 'Private Eye' comes from?

Mickey...As a matter of fact I do! The Pinkerton Detective Agency, founded in 1850, used the motto.."We Never Sleep", and accompanied it with a picture of an open eye. It was commonly referred to as "The Eye", and Pinkerton agents hired by private concerns, were then called "Private Eyes"...Now the term "Private Dick", has a completely different origin...Another time.

A Mr James Olsen of Metropolis asks...Dear Mr. Knowitall..
Where does the expression"Great Caesars Ghost" come from?

Jimmy...Actually your boss Perry White is the only person that says that phrase..I'm fairly certain that it an abberation of the phrase "Great Scott"!!!..Now that term comes from one of America's most admired soldiers during the 19th century, General Winfield Scott, hero of the Mexican War in 1847. During the mid-1800's, that was the hip thing to say!!!

Mr. Knowitall grows weary....Tomorrows HNT will be Blogdom's biggest coup!!!!

Pinkerton Boys were asses. Hired thugs. Bane of the working class. I'd never want to be called anything associated with the likes of them.
