I'm just checking to see how this works.

Did you know that the word "buff" (as in, a big fan) comes from the word "buff" meaning buff leather (which is an unfinished leather), and comes from the word "buffalo" (but not the American buffalo, also called a bison; rather, from European buffalo)?

That "buff leather" has also come to mean the color buff--a light tan.
