Wild Man

The Wild Man of the Navidad has been claimed to be the first Bigfoot in Texas. It was widely reported in 1837 along the Navidad River, in Sublime, Texas. The slaves of that era called it “The Thing That Comes,” because it was never seen, but evidence pointed to something being there. During the night inside the cabins, food would go missing; their fattened hogs would be replaced with thin ones. However, no valuables were never touched. Tools would sometimes go missing but would return...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
