dafremen When was the word "outrageous" first used to describe something that doesn't cause outrage?

What an interesting etymological transformation. Is it because our comedians engaged in behavior that traditionally would evoke outrage (Don Rickles, Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, etc), and it became such an important part of the draw, that advertising would lean into the adjective "outrageous"?

Or did it have anything to do with comedy at all? Perhaps it was society's overall delight in that which caused outrage..permeating the language?

Not sure. Seems like a strange evolution though. To be amused by that which once caused outrage. Have we become a tittering imps?
