What does OD stand for? Over Does Frank? Over does or over dose?
Mark, I know the "O" stands for Oliver as Charlie B refers to him as "Jolly Ollie", but the "D" is a mystery. I believe a thinking person should admit to what they have learned even if it is different that what they thought they knew and took as gospel.
What gets tricky in the forum is when someone assumes that something that didn't work for him, and thus was a mistake, won't work for anyone else; This seems to spark endless discussions.

Some mysteries should remain.

I went to high school in San Francisco 1967 -1969. Remember the Summer of Love? Back then OD did stand for "overdose".
If you saw the size of my pot belly you would think it stands for "outside diameter".
If you watched my eating habits you would say it stands for "over does" it.
A lot of my real estate and bee equipment is painted "olive drab".
My first name is Oliver, my paternal grandfather was Daniel, and my last name is Frank.
You are welcome to call me Odd Frank, Oliver, Ollie, Jollyollie, OD, or what ever derogatory name you wish, but calling me Frank is just plain wrong, unless you are my PE coach, which all of them did call me for some reason.
Ollie, in the military, (1960's), We all went by our last name only.
Yeah, those Coaches stay w/ you don't they? I can still hear Coach Raizzo yelling my name as I walked across the new wrestling mat.
Hogan's Heros. So that's where it comes from. Now adays it can be a little different. Hoss is what my son's buddies called him in Iraq. I'm sure it has to do w/ Berninghausen taking to long to say and he carried his weight in ammo, SAW, and body armor.
When I was in the Army, any difficult name was "alphabet with D" or R or whatever.
