# "Cosmic Joker"?

Around the internet one can often see the phrase "Cosmic Joker" attributed to Charles Fort [1] and it's used quite often here in the Fortean Times forums, too.

But...

...I can't find the phrase anywhere in Fort's books, at least not via Google in Mr. X's online versions. The closest I could get were some references to the "stupidity" of the godness, which is a quite different concept to a joker.

So, am I to daft to search, find and read? Or has somebody else coined the term?
