Did you ever wonder why?

My darling friend Tonya won some Mod Podge in a giveaway (IHAN's 31 days of giveaways)  Anyway, I sent her a message that she won the "Modge Podge."    I have always called it Modge Podge.  When I looked again,  I saw that is it really MOD Podge.  Am I crazy?    (well maybe, but let's move on.) 


My friend Pat said "We both say Modge Podge BECAUSE it used to be called that years ago. " Okay then, and she sent a link http://crafts.suite101.com/article.cfm/modge_podge_decoupage_glue   
I felt better but I went looking for a picture of the OLD product with Modge Podge on the label.   I didn't exactly find what I was looking for. BUT I did find that a company in South Africa  (I think) makes this:






So there! 




Ever wonder why YOU call something by the wrong name?  I  can certainly send you on a voyage of discovery. 








Oh, and I also found this gem of a blog post.  It made me laugh out loud. 
My Sordid Past with Mod Podge  especially the last bit about a toilet seat.

Morning, Gene. I thought all those people calling it Mod Podge were just a little bit misinformed. Of course it's Modge Podge. Always has been, always will be.
just saying.
love, Sam

I think I have an old jar from when I put the stamps on my table and covered with Modge Podge.. That is what it was called back in the late 70's and early 80's! YOU ARE NOT CRAZY and hey bought it so call it what you want! Right?
