Etymology[edit]

The wikipedia article Jingo [1] mentions the reference "By Jesus!" Does anyone know in what relation (if any) this is with the Japanese idiom 人後? -- 93.106.121.246 22:41, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

In the U.S., Jingo in the sense of Jesus is associated with elderly farmers and other country folk and has been attested for over 300 years. However it came to be, it certainly did not come from Japanese. —Stephen 23:17, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
This definition (synonymous with "hawk", or the slanderous "warmonger") is incorrect. Don't tell me to fix it either. I would've if I could've. 71.87.23.22 19:51, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
