I will be shocked if anyone has heard this word before. I would never have thought there was an actual word for this. But hey, you learn something new everyday. Todays wordlover word is…
 
Gardyloo(gar-de-lu)
Interjection- A warning shouted before throwing water from above
Derived from- French gare de l’eau, meaning “beware of the water” referring to the water and slops that were once thrown by servants from higher stories of a building onto the street.
 
Now I’m curious…
