Oddly Enough Blog

News, but not the serious kind

The upside is, the path is sure well-lit!

Blog Guy, you seem to know a lot about the language. I saw the word “devotee” a couple of days ago, and I wonder what it means.

devotee-1008-1-200.jpgGood question. The roots of the word “devotee” break down into DEVO and TEE, or “feet with no feeling.” So, proper usage would be like, “I dropped a cement block on my left devotee, but didn’t feel a thing.” I hope this is helpful.

Not to seem ungrateful, but what’s your source?

Photo captions. They teach us a lot about words. Check out these pictures, where “devotees” are walking on burning coals.

You never know ANYTHING! Can you give me the name of a REAL blog?

I could, but I’d probably just get it wrong.
