Happy Random Tuesday

 Our weather caster said, "Be that as it may" three times Sunday night during one newscast.  Perhaps she could have used "despite this," or "nevertheless."  When my husband says, "Nevertheless," I like to counter with "Ever the more." Get it?

The phrase, "Be that as it may" became popular in Middle English by Chaucer although he wrote it, "Be as be may." Chaucer is best known for The Canterbury Tales written  between 1387 and 1400.  I wonder if people (other than those who major in English Lit) ever read The Canterbury Tales anymore.  My mom had to read it when she was working on her Master's. Thankfully, I didn't. 

Middle English is like a whole different language.

Moving right along...  Have a laugh at one or two of these!  Which is your favorite?

And my favorite:
