Manute Bol Invented “My Bad”?

Arguably more impressive than either his basketball career or his humanitarian work, would be the reality that the lanky seven-footer from the Sudan invented the phrase “my bad.”

How would that not be the top entry in this gentleman’s obituary?  Your argument that he didn’t “invent” the phrase, that he merely coined it or popularized it are invalid to me.  Manute Bol invented my bad.

That was the sound of my brain exploding.

    I guess it's not. I think it's like a deep shade of red. Seriously though, I have no idea one way or the other, I'm just basing that off of reports in the Washington Post. Still, it would be pretty cool if it were true.

    Is the sky blue on your home planet? My high school teammates said “my bad” to each other in the early 1970’s.
