Let's fudge things up

Updated: Dec 30, 2022

In the late 17th century, fudge was a verb meaning "to fit together or adjust [clumsily]." Then around 1800, the word was used to mean a hoax or cheat.

By mid-century, the use of the term “Oh, fudge!” as a child-friendly expletive had come into favour, and was often used when something had been messed up.

It is believed that the first batch of fudge was created when someone was trying to make caramels and "fudged" up. The name stuck.

Did you have a "fudged up" week?! Try and find a way to unfudge yourself. Or even treat yourself to some fudge. Whatever kind acts that you can think of it surely must be pleasurable.
