@adactio is this bait? I though “bot” was from robot?

“Chatbot” is such an interesting portmanteau:
- “chat” from the French for cat, and
- “bot”, a contraction of the word “bottom”.
@adactio that reminds me of hearing of my French friend’s amusement at cul-de-sacs being (a) a thing here in the UK, and (b) that thing being a relatively middle-England “nice” thing; given that in French it’s the “arse of the bag” 🤣
