First, as a window into my present mind set I probably should warn you I just tried to fold an ATM receipt more than seven times. Also, I’d like to make clear I spend my lonely, wee hours watching the Discovery Channel instead of getting wooed into responding to some goofy post about the etymology of some old … what was I saying?
I thought everyone knew the phrase “The Whole Nine Yards” came from the 27 feet of ammunition fed through WWII bombers’ guns. Thus, “We gave them the whole nine yards.”
Great site. Well done. And I’m sorry for a new post on an old subject but I couldn’t (OK, didn’t try) to enter a responsive post to an archived topic.
