Nothing Personal

Concise history of the word asshat:

From what I can trace back from archived IRC chats, the term ‘asshat’ was first used in the large European country of Sweden as an alternative for the word ‘asshole.’  From Sweden, by way of both train and ship, the word found it’s way to the shores of western France, where it was used by a software coder named Louis (LOO-ee) in a telephone conversation with his second cousin in Newfoundland.  This great man was responsible for sending this fashionable European word to North America for all children to enjoy!
