  • Don't write off to the OED with a 1909 antedating, though: it's 1923. The Google Books top date is wrong. If you scan for various years in it you find current events of 1922 and January 1923, and a scheduled event in September 1923 is a long way off.

    Would he believe in our divorce Or would he have another course? I wonder how he'd like the price of gas. Would Conan Doyle make him feel spooky? Would he have a sweet Patootie Or rather go right back into his tomb?
