from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. See pellagra.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
It was the beginning of Jim Crow and separate but equal bullshit in the old honeysuckle-smellin', pelagra-riddled Deep South, honeychile.
He suffered from malnutrition– pelagra and beri-beri, dehydration, heat stoke, hepatitis, malaria, various fungus infections, typhoid, cholera, intestinal parasites…and succumbed during 1977 to emphysema caused by nearly five years of breathing cordite fumes.
(Hint: Before you answer, check on the scientific consensus of what caused puerperal fever and pelagra, and what scientific consensus had to say about continental drift.
