Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

OK- I'm too lazy to go further down the thread to see if this was answered slightly more completely.
The original game was french. In french (as in other languages) 0 is an egg. An egg is l'oeuf- from which came love.
As to the other scores, fifteen and thirty are one syllable words in french but forty five is quarante-cinq- got shortened to quarante and from there 40.
