Except thats wrong. There are over ten different accepted possible entomology origins for the word okay (or O.K.) and that isn't even one of them.

*Etymology. Entomology is the study of insects.

Thats not right, chap. The phrase O.K. originally came from the Words All Correct. It was kind of a trend in the 19th century to take wrong Letters to build an acronym. As in "Oll Korrect"

Your story is just kind of a legend.

Thank you. Thank you for THE TRUTH. How many wars, ever, were there zero casualties? Now how many for one country? Enough that ONE society associated 0 Kills with being "all is good"? I think NOT.
