Save Our Shelter has decided to go all out in its efforts to pressure the Fredericksburg City Council into approving a site within the city limits. Best o’ luck, lads.

And just what is the etymology of the name “Shaun”? Well it’s quite simple really. . .

Literal meaning

“Maker of small, irritating things out of hardening Blu-Tak.”


Mistranslated from the Dutch word for “neologisms” in 1222 AD, the name Shaun was originally used exclusively to refer to those bred solely for organ harvesting, before a wager between De Mancy Oblast and the Earl of Warwick altered its destiny.
