When the English settles landed in Australia, they noticed a strange animal that jumped extremely high and far. They asked the aboriginal people using body language and signs trying to ask them about this animal. They responded with: “Kan Ghu Ru” the English then adopted the word kangaroo. What the aboriginal people were really trying to say was “we don’t understand you”, “Kan Ghu Ru”.

During historic civil wars, when troops returned without any casualties, a writing was put up so all can see which read “0 Killed”. From here we get the expression “O.K” which means all is good.

In ancient England, people could not have sex without consent from the King. When people wanted to have a child, they had to solicit permission to the monarchy. In turn they would supply a plaque to hang on their door when they had sexual relations. The plaque read.. “Fornication Under Consent of the King” (F.U.C.K). This is the origin of the word.

Happy Learning.
