"he's a real loser"
Posted by Joel on September 23, 2002
The term "loser" for someone who is getting nowhere in life seems natural enough now, but it was probably a novelty at some point -- a new version of the term "ne'er-do-well" or something. Does anyone know about how far back the use of a phrase like "he's a real loser" goes?
