Food for thought ? June 2, 2006

Okay, the last post concluded with “food for thought”. Ever think about the phrase “food for thought” ? Do we eat and therefore think? Does that make the obese American smart? Is this one big case of I eat, therefore I am? Or is it more like Popeye, I yam what I yam?

Anyone know why we say “food for thought” ? I googled “etymology” and “food for thought” but found nothing. I think that’s “food for thought”. Or at least good enough for a Daily Shme.

Pass the dessert!
