    Hello, I'm a n00b, can someone explain to me the origin of the phrase "my bad", and why do people say it?

    They seem to say it when they've made a mistake.

    I don't get it.


    If this is stupid and obvious, then... umm... my bad, I guess

    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    I typed "my bad" into Wikipedia and it took me to an article about TMNT. So now I'm downloading some TMNT because that show rocked.
