When I was a kid I remember being told that cartoons were horrible, brain-rotting bits of entertainment, but there are some things that I would probably never know if I hadn’t been sitting on the floor watching Looney Tunes all morning:
1. “Timber!” If you hear someone yell “timber!” your first instinct is to look up for something that’s tall and probably falling on you. At least it is for me, and I have cartoons to thank for keeping me safe when I’m wandering around forests (which I do ALL THE TIME). I’ve probably heard the word “timber” used to mean “something is falling” far more often than I’ve heard it used as just another word for “lumber.” Continue learning through cartoons.
