People Who Become Nouns
Before there were silhouettes, there was a Silhouette. And before there was gerrymandering, there was a Gov. Gerry. It’s easy to forget that some of the English language’s most common words had real-life namesakes in living, breathing people. Like the Edsel, a disastrous car line that has become synonymous with failure. The line was named after Henry Ford’s son Edsel (at right here with his dad in 1905 in Detroit) by the company board. Thanks, guys.

With audible murmurs of “This is no way to live,” “What the hell am I doing here—I hate it here,” and “Fuck this place.

God bless The Onion. Seriously. #buttheyforgotaboutthebedbugs
