Concerning the word "piggy-back", what is the significance of "piggy" in the word?
#55949. Asked by eschatologist. (Mar 14 05 9:45 PM)
The whole phrase needs to be used to understand how this phrase evolved. Folk etymology has changed what was originally (and still is) meant to mean something carried; a load toted. The names have been changed, to protect the innocent. http://www.randomhouse.com/wotd/index.pperl?date=19960816
