Hey, there's a Wikipedia entry too. Neat.

Quote
Zounds is an old English curse word, a contraction of "God's wounds", referring to Christ's crucifixion wounds.

Peace & Luv, Liz

Hey, Stefanie beat me to the dictionary definition idea... I've just been on a Wikipedia kick lately so I decided to look for it after I saw she found it was a real word, hee. ;)

I guess somebody needs to wash Alex's and Connor's mouths out with soap! :suffer: Makes me wonder how nasty a curse word it was considered to be.

Hee, hee! Oh, that brings up some hilarious mental images. Harrison's quip he made a while back about a KQ barbershop quartet was crazy enough, but thinking about a KQ punk band is even funnier. I mean, like, they could jam on their lutes and stuff! XD

Peace & Luv, Liz

Well, I think you have to assume what we consider curse words these days.  Until it was posted, we (or at least I) had no idea that "Zounds" was a curse word.  (I'd post more, but I have lost my train of thought!  lol)
