    O.K., what does a pregnant polar bear smell like anyway? And I thought only snakes, not polar bears, weren’t present in Ireland due to Saint Patricius.

    Believe the “correct” miss-spelling is “OLL KORRECT” a fad that swept the country for a few years… also think there are a number of other sources for “OK”, including a rail yard worker who checked boxcar bearings and chalked his initials over each wheel “OK”

    I guess it’s safer for zookeepers to send the beagle in than administering the EPT test themselves.

    That makes more sense than K for Correct.

    “Oll Korrect” was one of a whole collection of silly misspellings that were popular for a while, just like “I can haz cheezburger” or “ketteh” or “teh”, today. Martin van Buren, known as “Old Kinderhook” is the reason “OK” is remembered while the rest are forgotten.

    Ripley’s once mentionned that “OK” came from the “0 Killed” mentions on battle reports during the civil war.

    Why not just call it “AC”? Or “acee”?
    Seems kinda silly to do that.

    The polar bear fossil found at Kew Bridge in London (the Irish bear) is only 70,000 years old, while a 100,000 year old polar bear fossil was found in the Arctic north of Norway. In any case, polar bears descended from the brown bear, which seems to have come from Eurasia.
