Like yeah

Posted to WritersAndGenres

Great question Cat -- I would love to know more about this too. What is the first known usage of "like"? It must have started long before Lenny Bruce, I bet. All I know is that it definitely, like, adds to the musicality of language.

Wasn't there, like, a 7-Up-type soft drink called "Like" once upon a time? I seem to like have this memory of this drink.
