Next proposition: a corruption of 'hark'. So it's from way way back somewhere.

Okay then let's corrupt the hark. At least friendships will not be damaged in the process. Does it matter that I do not know what a hark is? Oh wait! Ignorance maybe synonymous to boasting. Let's ask latishya's friend! Or ask latishya to ask latishya's friend.
Edited to add: hardy hardy hark hark

Doesn't it drive you nuts when they ruin a word by adopting some worthless negative definition as the dominate one? Jeez! Say the word God! But just try my pet peeve...What was that word again???
I just ranted about it!!! Oh well. Eliminated that one from my vocabulary.

Not at all. Wasn't it: "Hark, the Herald Angels sing?" smile
