50 years ago when in boarding school, an expression indistinguishable from Homer’s “doh” was a popular reproach to another teenage
dope’s intellectual vacuity of the moment. No one escaped the title! How did it transit
all those decades?? Is this just
in the records of the eternal return?? If the latter, then
‘doh’ arises from a deep cultural meme or, as the neuropsychs might have it, hard-wiring.
