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 (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.
