LOL, British Admiral John Fisher Sent Winston Churchill A Letter Saying “OMG!” In 1917

Posted Aug 8, 2012

Some of my favorite quotes is by Winston Churchill such as “a joke is a very serious thing” and “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” It turns out that in some of his communications with British Admiral John Arbuthnot Fisher made them sound like a crazy texting teenager. In the letter above, you will notice a letter from Fisher says “I hear that a new order of Knighthood is on the tapes–O.M.G. (Oh! My God!)–Show it on the Admirality.” [io9]
