CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD
Google Answers just got $10 for this bad answer, plus a $2 tip. I might not make $12 from etymology the rest of my whole life.
Subject: Re: Why did the chicken cross the road? (For PinkFreud)

Thank you very much for your generosity!
Regarding the matter of avian migration, it is my belief that the
chicken crossed the road for the same reason Mallory climbed Everest:
because it was there. Had the road not been there, the chicken would
have been cross. In a fowl mood. Henervated. Tired and feathered.
Please excuse my "tongue-in-beak" answer; $10.00 is no poultry sum.
Best of cluck,

THE ORIGIN OF CHEESECAKE
At the height of French postcards (sic) popularity, the phrase (sic)
"cheesecake" was coined. In 1915 George Miller shot the Russian opera singer, Elvira
Amazar, for a New York newspaper when she landed in the city. He had her hike
up her skirt ofr the shot, and according to legend when his editor saw the photo,
he exclaimed, "Why this is better than cheesecake!" (also a new delicacy at the time).
HDAS has "cheesecake from 1934, not 1915.
The classic pin-up genre - cheesecake - fulfills our definition perfectly. Cheesecake (Which Webster defines as "photography displaying especially female comeliness and shapeliness") is said to have gotten its name when, in September 1915, a newspaper photographer, George Miller, noticed a visiting Russian diva, Elvira Amazar, just as she was debarking her ship in New York. Miller asked the opera singer to hike up her skirt a little for the sake of the picture. Later, the photographer's editor, something of a gourmet, is supposed to have exclaimed, "Why, this is better than cheesecake!"--Kevin Freeman
