Happy Random Tuesday

I heard the term scot-free on the news a few days ago (in reference to one of our embarrassing public officers), and I agree with the newscaster, which is actually besides the point. What exactly does scot-free mean?  To me, it means with no punishment. 

Disappointingly, it has nothing to do with being Scottish! It actually originated in Icelandic from the word skot meaning tax or payment.   It was also referred to as bescot and escot.  Now we just say scot.  So literally, it means, without tax or without payment.  That could be seen as not paying for one's transgressions, I suppose.  So that was my language lesson for today.

How about some funnies?

and this is actually the truth!

Have a great week!  Don't forget to visit my friends at Random Tuesday Thoughts and Happy Tuesday!
