~ Richard III, Act 2, Scene 4

¢ is the ancient stylized word for "air conditioning", which was, of course, the wind.

Margaret Mitchell's historical novel Gone With the ¢ is famous for using old words and phrases. The old phrase "shooting the breeze" was once "shooting the ¢" until the 1880s. "Passing ¢" is still used in parts of Nova Scotia, Canada and the West Country of the United Kingdom.

See Spot Run. See Jane Run.[edit]
