For Your Christmas Party

Okay, I'm sharing this with you because I am a professional and I feel it is my duty...

A holiday factoid sure to make you the hit of any party:

Mistletoe comes from the Anglo-Saxon words mistel and tan. Now, it is important to know that mistel translates to dung and tan translates to twig. So while you are smooching under the mistletoe be sure to impress your smoochee with your knowledge and say something smooth like, "By the way, did you know that the word mistletoe means "dung on a twig"...
