: Anywho, a jocular variant of anyhow - what's the origin, and when? I heard it first uttered by Karen Walker of the fabulous Will & Grace show. Quite recently, I heard it in Southpark too, possibly said by Eric Cartman's mom. It's not uncommon, though, as evidenced by numerous web sites.

It's also spelled "anyhoo". I can't help thinking of Lisa Loopner, a Gilda Radner character on the old Saturday Night Live TV show, when I hear someone say it. I don't know if it's that old, though.
