    This was a random thought I had while driving to work this morning. Why is it called a drip tip? The tip part makes sense, I guess, but the drip part?

    I guess because it is the tip through which you drip, i think the term come from RDA's AKA Drippers, Before that people just called them mouthpiece's....But drip tip is more fun to say and it rhymes:rofl:

    At least i'm not the only one who just has random thoughts. My latest was why is a sausage that's put into a bun called an Hot Dog, made of pork (well maybe 1% pork and then the grinded grizzle if you're lucky) so not the case they leave a dog in a car on a hot summers day before slaughtering it and using the meat for such snacks!!

    In the mid-19th century, German immigrant butchers in the United States began selling variations of sausages, some of which were thin and long, like the dog breed dachshund. They called these dachshund sausages. Over time, the phrase may have been bastardized into “hot dog"[​IMG]

    And why it is called a Butty in some parts of the UK? Apparently in Wales, I saw it listed as a BAP. I'm like WTF. LOL

    We have a lot of local lingo, years ago if you just went 30 miles up the road you could say certain things that you always thought was English known everywhere to find they didn't have a clue what you were talking about and visa versa when you heard their local dialect. These days although all these words are still used locally because the world has got so much smaller then stands to reason the UK has got tiny and for the most part we do Know all the different local words for different regions. The Butty also known in other parts as a bap is also referred to as a batch in other places. The East midlands were i originate from it's called a cob and the North West were i live now it's known locally as a Barm Cake while other words for it elsewhere is a roll.
