In 1917, OMG, short for oh my god, first appeared in print—in a letter to Winston Churchill. The abbreviation was perhaps anticipated by migod and ohmigod in the 19th century, meant to imitate the colloquial pronunciation of the exclamation. Today OMG is used EVERYWHERE, from the music industry to your lips. And now you can sport it above your hips. OMG was that too corny?
