However the current widespread worldwide use seems to date from 1995 when Alicia Silverstone's character used the phrase 'My bad' several times in her movie “Clueless”.

Is that the one where Colonel Mustard does it in the kitchen with some sort of electrical appliance?

Maybe our Joan can shed some light?   

I thought we did sheds ages ago.. Joules, Jewels, Duels, Jules, any progress yet?

Didn't see the fillum myself ... but knowing Hollywood of the 1990s it was probably more like Alicia Silverstone doing it in the bedroom with some sort of electrical appliance!

I'm glad we've got to the bottom of that...

Thought you meant Alicia Silverstone for a moment. I'm disappointed now.
Boldly going.......

Just the other day, I was skipping happily through the countryside.

Ahh!

I picked a buttercup!

Although why anybody would want to leave a buttock lying around I've simply no idea, before anyone asks.

As bad as Ray Illingworth relieving himself at the Pavillion End! (Or as Johnners said "You've joined us at an interesting moment, Illingworth is relieving himself at the Pavillion End")

Yep, I was thinking of you at the time I typed that. Nothing t do with Holding Willey's I hasten to add, bit I recall you quoting that a while back.

I see you're still playing out a 0-0 draw on your Korma/Karma thing. Playing the 541 no doubt. And they wonder why crowds are dwindling...    ???

Gok Wan winking at me with his pearly whites and lippy.

I'm sure he's a very nice bloke - he shouldn't annoy me....(altogether now)....BUT HE DOES!

Blokes with beer guts (bad enough anyway) doing their shopping in Safebury's wearing track suit bottoms when they've clearly never been near a gym let alone jogging.

It shouldn't annoy me....(pause for effect).....BUT IT DOES!

Marvellous. Especially if they start whistling tunelessly.
