This topic was covered in a classic SD column; but apparently it's text hasn't made it onto this website yet. Never fear. It's contained on pages 232-235 of _Return of the Straight Dope_. It is arguably the funniest column Unca Cece has written.

The question "What is a Merkin?" on the ROTSD question index ( http://www.straightdope.com/classics/tsdindx3.html ) leads to a page ( http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a3_232.html ) with no text yet, if you want to watch that space.

ok, so that's where this bizarre memory finds its roots. Gimme a break, I read that book about eight years ago! At least my subconscious led me to the correct asking place.

and thanks for the links.
