MONDAY'S WORD - BABYDOLLS
'Babydolls' are a kind of sexy lingerie item, aren't they?
Not according to an intriguing note in Michael Quinion's weekly 'Worldwide Words'*
BABYDOLLS are a breed of miniature sheep, proving useful in a New Zealand vineyard because they keep the grass short but aren't tall enough to eat the grapes off the vines.
Aw, isn't that sweet - live and learn!
