Apple did not consult with us when they named Ping, Ping.

Filberts

There I was, enjoying some mixed nuts, when I noticed on the package that filberts were a part of the mix. Filberts? Isn’t that a department store?

As it turns out, I was not eating miniature department stores. I was eating… hazelnuts! Well, relatives of hazelnuts. But pretty darned close.

The Internet saved the day and pointed me to this rather detailed page at The Nut Factory. Therein, the story of how filberts got their name is explained.

I’m a fan of filberts.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
