Remember that G Love song called Cold Beverage?  The refrain was, “Stick it in the fridge, stick it in the fridge, stick it in the fridge. Stick it in the fridge.”

So, how come the word fridge has a D in it when the word refrigerator does not?  (Even though I try to stick a d in refrigerator every time I type it.)

This is a word-related question that I couldn’t find a direct, definitely correct answer for.  What do you think?
