OMG = Meme?

The term “OMG”, could it possibly be an Internet Speak meme? The origin is very spotty, but I’m almost certain this originated on the Internet.
(Note: I realize this has been submitted and deadpooled, but I am attempting to make an entry that is not a joke)


Is this worthy of an entry and could I get some help?

“Oh my god” is nothing new. Its been used way before the internet (in other media or in conversations), and the way it is used on the internet is more or less the same.

OMG is the precursor and the theme of many memes.

In my opinion, its worth documenting. But don’t be too hopeful that it’ll get confirmed. Or even stay in submissions.

@Sweatie Killer

Do you think that should be added into that article? I already have a few variants such as OMGWTFBBQ. Also, would you like to help out with it a bit?

^I already noted ZOMG (Sorry Sweatie, I ninja’d you).

I added any info at the top of my head, and edited it to make it look/sound better.

However, I haven’t done any research. I apologize for that- I have a few entries on my plate, and will definitely get around to OMG.




“Also, would you like to help out with it a bit?”

Sure, but I aint not no english smart thing.

“best if I did not.”
