The Definition of “Doh”

in Frivolity

It’s in the OED:

Expressing frustration at the realization that things have turned out badly or not as planned, or that one has just said or done something foolish. Also (usu. mildly derogatory): implying that another person has said or done something foolish.

The best part is when it was first used: not by Homer Simpson, but in a 1945 BBC radio show.

Hat tip to Eric Lawrence.
