In a discussion about pennies, all three distinguished anchors on _Fox & Friends_ have just

  1.  agreed the word "tips" comes from "to insure proper service,"

  2.  credited the etymological fallacy indirectly by discussing whether tips shouldn't "really" be given before rather than after one is served "as they evidently were in the beginning,"

  3.  wondered how that could be,

  4. segued to another story.

  Maybe we need a new acronym....
