In Response To "SKANK" ..........it's origin is known

Hello there,

Among other things, I am a funk and roll lyricist, and the word "SKANK" came from an ideal that I had while trying to think of a title for a song of mine that was way too funky.
Well, we all know that the funk will sho nuff make you STANK ? And that nothing STANKS worst than the fart of a SKUNK ? Kicked SKUNK and STANK around and came up with SKANK.

Brilliant huh ? sadly enough, true.
