This is one of those “will bash myself on the head” when I find it, things, but I suddenly am annoyed ‘cos I cant’ fidn an origin for the phrase. OK, there’s a ton of things I cannot recall from …ahem…years ago, but this iis the one I suddenly want to know. I am Googling, and tried also Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, but all I get is blooming Nothing. :smack:
So, does any clever person have a clue, please, pretty please?
