Hi Ian,

Didn't know that one. Nick Jr, eh?

The phrase is currently commonly used in Frank Cho's "Liberty 
Meadows" newspaper comic.

I believe it was also used in an old newspaper comic featuring 
characters named Maggie and Jigs, but I wasn't able to verify 
that quickly. [Ah! The strip was called "Bringing Up Father" 
and ran from 1913 to May of 2000.]

Couldn't find any 'phrase history' sites containing this phrase 
... and least not in a quick search.

Wikipedia says it's from pop music going back to the 50's.

Anybody else have info on possible origin?


>From Brecht to Beast in just five moves - neato!

;-)  We really need to come up with some kind 
of point system for the threadjacking game.
