Bowls, Bowls, All Types of Bowls

Super Bowls, good for: heaps of dip and things with which to dip, commercials that can be analyzed by their political and cultural ethos, and inspiration for the earlier (better) bowls, Kitten Bowl and  Puppy Bowl.

If this was a linguistic blog we’d now discuss the etymology of the word bowl and why it has that weird “wl” ending. (Also how bowl the container comes from Middle English bolle and Old English bolla but bowl the game – e.g. bowling – comes from Middle English bowle and Old French boule. Also how that could be the reason bowl doesn’t rhyme with cowl, as in the neckline. OKAY I’LL STOP.)

Here’s a photo of bread and cheese.
