A Scallywag Who

Sam from Inland Empire, CA writes –
“The round with Richard S. discusses definitions and derivations, and specifically “carpetbagger”. Richard says “a scallywag who …” and one of the panelists asks where did that come from and somebody else says “next week’s show.” I don’t know if you ever did, but it sent me scurrying to Wikipedia, which claims ‘scallywag’ also has civil war origins. If the word has not already made it in to a round of definitions and derivations, I suggest adding it — and noting the connection back to Richard and ‘carpetbagger’!
We did locate the ‘scallywag’ round from our earlier years Show 710, Round 1, Question 3. Thank you for taking us down memory lane.
