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.
