‘OK’ = ‘Och-Aye’. OK?

This is an example of a ‘Eureka!-DOH!’ A discovery that makes you feel monumentally stupid.
‘OK’ = ‘Och-Aye’. It must do. With the same meaning and sound, it seems impossible that Scottish emigrants to the USA were not the immediate originators of ‘OK’ into american culture. In the same way that ‘buddy’ is said to be a derivation of the term ‘butty’ used by Welsh miners. I even just updated Wikipedia  with this life-changing revelation.
Which raises the question, how many more Elephants in the Room? What else is draped everywhere about in plain sight waiting for us to open our eyes?
