    camouflage
    1917, noun, verb, and adjective, from French camoufler, Parisian slang, "to disguise," from Italian camuffare "to disguise," which is of uncertain origin, perhaps a contraction of capo muffare "to muffle the head." Probably altered in French by influence of French camouflet "puff of smoke, smoke puffed into a sleeper's face" (itself of unknown origin) on the notion of "blow smoke in someone's face." The British navy in World War I called it dazzle-painting.”
    Cited from etymonline.com

    I stress camouflage with my fencers all the time. Fencing is warfare writ small, and deception is critical to success.

    Apologies that this is not “funny.”
