I am trying to figure out what the intern was trying to say with the headline and I am coming up with a blank.

Maybe, they were hacked? Maybe the intern was mad he got passed over for job and decided to plot his revenge like this?

I don’t have the answers, do you?

    That Dick is short for Richard everyone knows, but why? Very few can explain.

    Richard is derived from the Germanic “Rikharthu”– with “Rik” meaning leader and “Harthu” meaning hard. Now, one may think ‘oh right, with a name like that, this arrogant prick must be a dick’. Well not at all. According to Today I Found Out, the reason behind the unfortunate nickname is much simpler. People apparently enjoyed using rhyming nicknames. Richards were called Rick, which rhymes with dick and the rest is history.

    On a similar note, “dick” means fat in German. Now you know.

    The name Richard is very old and it’s true origins may well be lost in the depths of time past. ‘Richeard’ is a name from Old English where ‘Ric’ meant ruler and ‘heard’ meant hard. In those days of yore, before word-processors, everything was written down and abbreviations became common and agreed upon. Also in the 13th century rhyming slang became popular so Richard becomes Rich and eventually Rick which rhymes with Dick. Much like William – Will – Bill.
    ‘Dick’ eventually, like ‘Jack’, came to mean all men as in “every Tom, Dick, or Harry”. Shakespeare uses “every Tom, Dick, or Francis” in Henry IV Part I.
    Maybe they were referring to Richard “Dick” Sherman? No matter the excuse, the headline = BAD FORM!
