Word of the Day
- A clown; a rustic; a boor.

According to the OED, the 'clod' portion of this word may be a variant of 'clot,' a mass or coagulation.
Quote of the DayIt is curious how there seems to be an instinctive disgust in Man for his nearest ancestors and relations. If only Darwin could conscientiously have traced man back to the Elephant or the Lion or the Antelope, how much ridicule and prejudice would have been spared to the doctrine of Evolution.
- Havelock Ellis (1859 - 1939), British psychologist.
