  • Actually, the first recorded user was Charles Briggs in his two-volume book The Adventures of Harry Franco in 1839, according to the link I cited below. And indeed, I heard this phrase long before DFW was old enough to hunt & peck on a keyboard, rest his soul. :-)

  • Wow. I think bilby was just in howling fantods, there, for a moment.

    Uhhh... reesetee? Your teeth are blue.

  • *eats dark blue–frosted cupcake; smiles*

  • *adds to speed-dial* Self-Defence Tips Against Far-Flung Cupcakes In Scurrilous Shades Of Blue (recorded message, $1.95 per minute but my fur is worth it, sheesh).

  • Perhaps the dark colour will make bilby less visible in the dark. Always handy for nocturnal animals, I'm sure.

  • Don't do it, bilby. Don't trade places with what I been through. (said in best Oprah Winfrey-in-The-Color-Purple voice)

    I finally clicked on the link at the bottom of this page and decided I really like this word after all.

  • Correction: *picks up dark blue-frosted one*

    It has lots of butter in it--surely that would make one's coat shinier.

  • All that icing cannot be good for bilby's fur, surely.

  • *replaces pink-frosted one, picks up blue-frosted one*

    April 2, 2008

  • No, no! Not pink! No!

    April 2, 2008

  • You have a problem with my cupcakes?? *slowly picks up a pink-frosted one*

    April 2, 2008

  • What is it with cupcakes this week? You're despatching them in all directions.

    April 2, 2008

  • What? I was just going to feed them a treat. Maybe a cupcake.

    April 2, 2008

  • Be warned, I have the Royal Society For Prevention Of Cruelty To Fantods on speed-dial.

    April 2, 2008

  • Would you like some? I can quiet them a bit.

    April 1, 2008

  • How bizarre. I don't have fantods, and if I did they certainly wouldn't howl.

    April 1, 2008

  • Oh, why thank you. ;-)

    April 1, 2008

  • Did help. But you can keep them ;-)

    April 1, 2008

  • This might help, bilby.

    April 1, 2008

  • Where does this expression originate?
