Wednesday Wisdom 02-27-2013

Wednesday Wisdom or useless information!


Scuttlebutt is half rumor and half gossip! It was first heard when sailors gathered around a large butt or cask of water. This container was always placed close to a vessel's scuttle and when crew members went for a drink of water they would exchange the latest rumors with the other crew members. Much like the "water cooler" where employees gather to gossip talk.
