Seriously. This bit of SDMB has made it into popular culture.

The show was Kyle XY (first time I've ever seen it, so don't be judgin'). A girl was walking through the door of a coffee house and assumed the guy in front of her was going to hold the door for her. He didn't, it hit her, and she spilled coffee all over herself. She said "What, would it get you kicked out of the Asshat Society to hold the door?"

What's next, I burning your dog?

"Asshat" predates the SDMB. I believe a similar thread found it originated on That '70s Show in the late '90s.

"asshat" has been around for decades.

ETA: So close! But I think it even predates That 70s Show. And didn't Red threaten to make Eric wear his ass for a hat, rather than call him an asshat?

You don't really think asshat originated here?

Asshat (http://mtannoyances.com/?p=341) did not originate here.

Considering the first episode ran in 2004 you might want to re-check your facts....

I found myself uttering that word in front of the family gathering this month. I've never used that word out load before. It is drilled into my mind thanks to the board.

Interesting the page hung during the simulpost. Is that what kills the boards? Nah!

Understandable mistake. We all assume, as impressionable kids, that our generation must have coined all those forbidden curse words that we end up learning. Kind of the same thing here.

And I think it was already in use on this board by that time.

I was fairly certain that it didn't have its origin on this board, but it seems like this place is its biggest vector. Maybe I'm wrong about that.

But that show was the only time I'd ever heard it outside of the the boards. Definitely a surprise.

According to this heavy-duty etymological research (http://boards.academicpursuits.us/sdmb/showthread.php?t=177587), asshat wasn't used on the Dope until August, 2001, and was spotted on the Usenet in 1998.

The OED hasn't returned my calls.

"Asshat" is big on TWoP (Television Without Pity) too. Actually, so is claiming everything as a shout-out. I wonder who originated that? ;)

I'll be convinced when I finally hear "penis ensues". Kent Brockman had half of it once*, come on Kent, go all the way**!

* - How do you know we're live? PENIS!

** - no, I'm not saying he got "penis" from here. He got it from his pants.

FWIW: 1976, in the movie The Outlaw Josie Wales, a Union officer threatens the kid Jamie with: "Now get back in line, boy before I kick you so hard, you'll be wearing your ass for a hat."

Burr and Hamilton faught a duel over which one had originated "Asshat," and whether it looked like "Affhat." ;)

Just in case no one has pointed this out yet, Asshat did not originate on the SDMB.


Also, That 70's Show debuted in 1998.




FWIW: 1976, in the movie The Outlaw Josie Wales, a Union officer threatens the kid Jamie with: "Now get back in line, boy before I kick you so hard, you'll be wearing your ass for a hat."

So that means it dates back to the Civil War at least, right?
