You been hookin'?

The term “Hooker,” meaning a prostitute, originated with U.S. Army General Joseph Hooker, whose penchant for war was matched only by his predilection for paid female companionship. In New Orleans during the Civil War, Hooker spent so much time frolicking with ladies of the night, that the women came to be called “Hooker’s Division”. Eventually these specialized “troops” became known simply as “hookers”.
