In Your Face OED

My epic smackdown or the mighty and majestic Oxford English Dictionary continues! The OED says the first time the word "mammoth" (in any form) appeared in print was in 1692. I just found my third from before that date! That alone will be worth the price of my book.

Boo, and further, yah.

PS - They know of three unpublished instances before then. I know of four.
