nope and don't know
I have heard this phrase from the "old folks", but have no idea from whence it came. No, I have never used the phrase, myself
Yes siree, Bob. I have used it both ways. And according to my sources (cough cough) it was used on the Howdy Doody Show but didn't originate there.
If you ever hear me using it, shoot me please!!!!
Aww, go on then
From a tale told by the ones da didn't get sum lol
Ever heard of the Algonquin Round Table? It was a group of comedians and actors in the early 1900's that gathered at the Algonquin Hotel and shared their Ideas and jokes. They eventually wrote a story called "No Siree" that is the earliest reference to this phrase I know of. Of course I wasn't there so I don't know if one of them actually made up the phrase, but it dates that far back.
