Sigh. I don't know why people persist in believing that a word can have a "real" or "true" meaning that is completely different than the most commonly used and understood meaning. A word might have an origin that is unrelated to its current usage or earlier/alternate definitions that are no longer common, but a word "means" nothing more or less than what it is understood to mean by the people who use it.

That's true, but it's probably also safe to say that, even if this person meant to enquire about the etymology of "dude," it's unlikely to derive from an infected hair follicle on an elephant's butt.

Though if it did, I suppose Rush Limbaugh could say a dude kept him out of Vietnam...

Comment: BOY WHAT A BUNCH OF LOSERS. THE VERY IDEA OF A GAS BOYCOTT IS A
JOB BEST FITTED FOR AN IDIOT, AND TO THINK THAT SOMEONE THINKS THE FED CAN
CONTROL GAS PRICES IS A BIGGER IDIOT.

REMEMBER BACK IN THE 70'S WHEN PRES CARTER TRIED TO CONTROL GAS PRICES?
DO YOU REMEMBER GAS LINES?
DO YOU REMEMBER GAS RATIONING?
DO YOU REMEMBER ALL THE NO GAS TODAY SIGNS?

LEAVE THE GAS PRICES ALONE AND THEY WILL WORK THEMSELVES DOWN.

IF YOU WANT TO BRING DOWN GAS PRICES CONTACT YOUR YOUR LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC
CONGRESSMAN, SENATOR AND INSIST ON OIL EXPLORATION IN ANWAR, ALASKA AND
TWO NEW SUPER REFINERIES ON THE WEST COAST ALONG WITH 3 NEW REFINERIES ON
THE EAST COAST AND THEN YOU WILL SEE GAS PRICES DECREASE.

BUT IF YOU THINK THAT GAS WILL EVER DROP BELOW $2.00 A GALLON YOU MAY AS
WELL GO AHEAD AND END IT WHICH MEANS MORE GAS FOR ME.................CUZ
