Why? ? ?

Why do they call it an asteroid when it's outside the hemisphere, but call it a haemorrhoid when it's in your ass?

  • asteroid
    1802, coined by Herschel from Gk. asteroeides "star-like," from aster "star" (see star) + -eidos "form, shape" (see -oid).

    [From Middle English emoroides, hemorrhoids, from Old French emoroides, from Latin haemorrhoidae, from Greek haimorrhoïdes, pl. of haimorrhoïs, from haimorrhoos, flowing with blood : haimo-, hemo- + rhein, to flow; see sreu- in Indo-European roots.]
