"My Bad"

Postby nakatago » Thu, 24 Jun 2010 3:37 pm

With Manute Bol's recent passing, people have been attributing him to coining the term: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/dcsportsbog/2010/06/manute_bol_and_my_bad.html

Did a little quick-search and I found this:

Shakespeare used the term with something like the current meaning, in his Sonnet 112:

Your love and pity doth the impression fill
Which vulgar scandal stamp'd upon my brow;
For what care I who calls me well or ill,
So you o'er-green my bad, my good allow?

Neat.
