If everyone got a life instead of providing interesting or humorous facts, there would be no IAB, no Collegehumor, no Cracked. Celebrate Mr. Peabody for contributing to the website, unlike you, you naysayer.

Although, personally I`m inclined to disregard a lot of British English words/spelling just because they gave rise to the godawful C.ockney slang. And that`s just terrible. Also because even though American English still has redundant letters, British English is worse.

Amazing how all you Europeans are so full of yourselves. Why don`t you look in your own Oxford English Dictionary?

The OED gives a first cite for "tidbit" as 1640; first for "titbit" was 1694. It`s etymology section indicates that "tidbit" was first. "Tid" seems to have meant "delicate." Most likely "titbit" was created by folk etymology, changing "tid" to the more familiar "tit," meaning "small."

The source of the quotes are all British, so the idea of Americans corrupting it is unlikely (especially when you consider the dates of first use). Source

Titbit is actually the correct. Prudish Americans changed it to tidbit centuries ago.

Wow, that was some interesting censorship... I think most people will get roosterfosters, but that latter word was supposed to be "sn.igger". I see the internet police are on their way to arrest me for inadvertent racism.

@zaokii The population of China is roughly 3x that of America`s. Without doing any research I would be willing to bet that more Americans speak Spanish than Guatemalans simply due to the fact that there are so many more Americans than Guatemalans. That doesn`t necessarily mean that English is the primary language in China nor that Spanish is the primary language in America. It isn`t, but with large populations there will be many people who can speak other languages. English happens to be the commercial language of the time so most people who have any interaction of the outside world will know some English just for communication with others who may or may not speak English primarily.

Those look like Chinese snacks to me. Many Asian countries have begun to use English on signs because it`s becoming a predominant language over there. More people speak English in China than in America, which is a bit sad.

bex753 - well, considering the fact that `american` english was changed from `english` english, you can`t really poke fun at other countries choosing how they wish to spell it. Both are correct in different parts of the world. Although titbit is more correct. ;3

Tidbit is an Americanism. Titbit is the original English word.

It is actually tit bit. It`s a British phrase originally that got changed to tid bit in America for whatever reason (some say the prudish nature of early Americans.

You can`t assume that they meant tid bit, some people learn English from the English not Americans.

I`m pretty sure what they mean is a "tidbit", which is an enjoyable morsel of something (e.g. food or gossip).

@tedgp So in the American dialect of English, tidbit is correct. It`s just a pun posted to entertain you. Relax.

The Japanese call snacks otsumami, or sunakku if they`re feeling particularly katakana that day.

titbit is the correct word, Americans changed it to Tidbit because they thought the word "tit" was too rude.
