Wanna learn something through animation? Like the origin of the word "pants"? Here's a great way to spend a few seconds of your day.

"Mysteries of Vernacular" is a series in progress which in its final form will contain 26 etymological installments, one for each letter of the alphabet.

Each episode takes more than 80 hours to create between the research, construction of the book, and animation. So if you enjoy what you see and would like to support the effort you're encouraged to make a donation to the production at
