In Which It Has A New Meaning

Ever wonder where words came from, or why we call certain things by certain names? I'm fairly certain that just about everyone has thought about this at least once before. I'll admit that I'm probably more of a logophile than the next person, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I digress.

I ask because I stumbled across an advertisement online the other day that brought an entirely new meaning to a fairly common word, and it made me wonder what the people who were in charge of naming this particular subject were truly thinking about. I'll let you decide:




I know that, anatomically speaking, the knee doesn't fall under this category, but doesn't that image bring a different interpretation to the word "ball joint"?

Have a good weekend, everyone.
