Quash Squash Quash Squash
I’m such a word nerd, and find it funny/cool that the word ‘squash’ as in the veggie, and ‘squash’ as in ‘crushing something’ have absolutely nothing to do with each other! Squash, the veggie, comes from the Naragansett Indians and from their word askutasquash which meant ‘green things that are eaten raw’. The verb ‘to squash’ comes from Old English and the word ‘quash’ meaning to crush. Oh and the game? hmm. next time …..
