Things that make you go hmmmm.....

Yesterday, unfortunately, while all of you folks were taking it easy and cooking, I had to work! Here are some random things my coworkers and I googled while we tried to make it to 3:15...

* Why is it that peanut butter cookies are the only cookie that people mash down with fork tines?

* Why is the name Peggy a nickname for Margaret?

* Why is Thanksgiving on a Thursday?

So, did you come up with any answers?

That Peggy thing always threw me off. I also always hated that to have the name Maggie, you really also had to be named Margaret. Lame.

Yep, Kelly, I sure did with the help of some blog visitors. Best answers found were:

Crazy. I was watching the pop-up version of Camp Rock with daughter tonight and they actually answer the question why is Peggy a nickname for Margaret. And if I remember correctly Mog and Meg were shortened versions that eventually turned into Pog and Peg which eventually turned into Poggy and Peggy. Has anyone ever heard of Poggy??? I mean seriously. So tonight after that tidbit was learned we started calling my father-in-law Poggy instead of Poppy. Much funnier I think!
