l005-1

 

In his eagerness to acquire, an ideograph for simple or stupid, man literally acted the part. He appended to fish ( l005-2 ) a representation of a nose ( l005-3 ) which was later corrupted tol005-4 ( speak ). The tragic result : a "dumb" fish unable to speak and a "nosey" one, without scent or sense : l005-5. Simple man, like stupid fish, sees the bait, not the hook.
