I don't know if anyone else here is interested in word origins but I'll ask you all anyway.
I recently started thinking about the word 'oddball' and did some poking around on the internet and the best I could find was that it had originated in about 1948 and that it was an aviator's term. I went over my very old OED with a magnifying glass and couldn't even find the word in there.
Any one have any ideas?
