Q, q November the Alphabet Project

Q, q: From the Semitic qoph, “monkey.” The monkey’s tail curves like a contented cat’s in our uppercase Q, and in the lowercase, hangs as if a lead weight were tied to it.

quack: Onomatopoeia for a duck call, also any irritating noise. A healer who incessantly boasted or quacked about his salves was called a quack-salver, hence quack as a term for a bogus physician.

Coming November 30th, Return of the STOOPID CONTEST!
