From back of book: Did you know that noon is properly at 3 p.m., which explains why a matinee takes place in the early afternoon? Why are chimney sweeps believed lucky at weddings? Which famous scientist/astronomer's name translates as little onion? Since "petticoat" means little coat, when and why did it move below the waist?

The answers to these questions and many more that you never thought to ask are all here. Based on the highly popular column in TODAY, this second witty and urbane volume of fascinating facts is guaranteed to intrigue, amuse and inform.
