Ready? O.K.! Ready? Okay!

Girl 1: "Wait, so what does o.k. stand for?"

Girl 2: "What do you mean, 'stands for okay'"?

Girl 1: "No, yeah ,I know, but what does it stand for...like i.e. stands for 'for example'"

....a few minutes later.....

Girl 2: "It stands for okay! O-K-A-Y, like its its own word..."

O.K. actually came from some war - I think WW1 or 2. They had to report how many people were killed each day and write it down. Wel,l for killed they just wrote "K." So when no one was killed, they wrote 0k. Hence - OK. :)

Actually it's a corruption of a misspelling- editors used to write "oll korrect" (all correct) on manuscripts, abbreviated to o.k. Or maybe just one editor of something famous, I can't remember. It was in my history book last year.
