Arby’s was founded by Forrest and Leroy Raffel in Ohio in 1964, who were determined to own a fast food franchise based on a food other than hamburgers. The brothers wanted to use the preferred name of “Big Tex”, but that name was already being used by an Akron businessman. They eventually decided on the Arby’s moniker, based on R.B., the initials of Raffel Brothers, thus Arby’s, LLC, was born.
Irish stepdance is a type of performance dance originating in Ireland from traditional Irish dance.

Irish stepdance is performed in most places with large Irish populations, though not all stepdancers are of Irish ancestry.
The first use of the name “chimpanzee“, however, did not occur until 1738. The name is derived from a Tshiluba language term “kivili-chimpenze”, which is the local name for the animal and translates loosely as “mockman” or possibly just “ape”. The colloquialism “chimp” was most likely coined some time in the late 1870s.
