When things go totally haywire

Email News Alerts

Henry Longfellow (1807-1882) warned us. He wrote that, "Into each life some rain must fall. Some days must be dark and dreary." But Longfellow didn't warn us that not only must some rain fall, but sometimes things would just plain go totally haywire. And the reason he didn't warn us about things going haywire is that the term had never been used until it turned up in a debate in the Canadian House of Commons in 1917.
