  1. Word nerd:

    So “shandy” means “boisterous” or “half-crazy”? No wonder Laurence Sterne chose it as the surname of the endearingly eccentric Tristram (narrator), Walter (his father), and Toby (his uncle), in “The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman.” Even if you don’t get all the 18th-century satirical references, this book is still laugh-out-loud funny. Thanks for the information!
