OK vs Okay

  • April 29, 2009, 5:17pm

Like I said on March 20, 2008, OK originated with the ancient Egyptians. If you go to the website http://www.eyelid.co.uk/e-name.htm (which shows ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic symbols for letters) and type in OK you will get a bird and a basket. This in modern terms is like getting a chicken strip basket from Zaxby's. Which we all know is OK. But really as cevdet yagci alias yiÄŸitoÄŸlu(son of brave)
knows the ancient Egyptians did not have a Zaxby’s. But its obvious, the ancient Egyptians started the OK term with the meaning of everything is doing fine when they represented the symbol for OK as food (the bird) in a basket.
