    Today’s comic is influenced by Walt Disney and the old story “Snow White & The 7 Dwarfs.” In the original story they either had no names or different ones.

    I’m sure many a student wish they had on loan, a smarter student to help them through school.

    What is lent, or borrowed, is ‘on loan’. Loan itself is not a verb, unless things have changed in the last eighty years!

    Every noun can be verbed.
    Like, for instance, in the phrase: every noun can be verbed

    @bachsuitetwo and MaiG:

    Visit www.merriam-webster.com and read the Usage Discussion of Loan. That should settle the matter.
