The words "assassination"and "bump" were invented by Shakespeare. If you say "laugh it off" you are also quoting shakespeare. Other inventions included ´puke´ and ´bedroom´.

Ever wonder why a groom carries a bride over the threshold on their wedding night?  It was considered a very bad omen if the bride tripped or fell into her home on her wedding night.  So the groom would carry her over the threshold to ensure that she safely entered the home.
