Etymology & Historical Origin - Billy
Billy is the Aramaic word for "Dah!" Back in the 1st century AD there was a lesser known Biblical character from the New Testament named Billy Boyden who was the younger, shorter, beer-drinking step-brother of Jesus. In their boyhood, the two brothers made their living as fisherman in the Sea of Galilee. One day, as Jesus turned his attentions away from the boat ever-so-briefly, the vessel wandered out to sea. Billy screamed “My boat! My boat! Jesus! Goddamn it, my boat!” Fortunately the boat was recovered, but the chafed Jesus was so furious that Billy had used the Lord’s name in vain he reported him as a dissenter to the Roman government of pagans. Billy quickly shacked up with Mary Magdalene, a childhood friend of his and Jesus’ (who also happened to be a prostitute and easy lay). They married, went on a honeymoon to Mesopotamia, and then Billy tied of her. He heard that St. Paul had some extra beer, so he followed him on his “Road to Damascus” where they planned to drink their brewskis and beat-up some Christians. Suddenly a bright light appeared and blinded them both “Who are you, Lord?” Paul asks, to which a voice replies: “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.” [Acts 9:4]. Paul converts immediately and his sight is restored. But Billy Boyden simply looks up at the bright lights and says “Dah!”
