Hard as it is to believe, this 1970 English comedy sketch is the origin.

It is amazing that it caught on YEARS later because in 1970 there was no Internet – but a few years later, Newsgroups debuted and the term just took off and lived on.

Actually it's not so amazing. Everybody loves Monty Python.
