Within a day, the word was common currency and had acquired a meaning (since no one knew what it meant, everyone thought it was some sort of test) and Daly had some extra cash in his pocket. However, there is no evidence to support the story, and the term was already in use before the alleged bet in 1791.

Q25. Back in the day, animation was an artists job, and not a computers.

Every tiny detail of a cartoon individual had to be drawn painstakingly and meticulously some 30 to 40 thousand times, and omitting some small details or altering them to make things easier to draw would not only make cartoonists breathe a sigh of relief but also potentially saved millions of dollars in man hours.

So much so, that in The Simpsons, God is the only character not to share this characteristic.
