What ith your query? #003:
So I don't have to waste my weekly Ask.Mefi question on this, do any of you know how far back this phrase goes?:
I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.
Most folks say Dodgeball. Turns out it at least goes back to Austin Powers: Goldmember. When I tried on justcurio.us, someone gave me Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion. I haven't been able to verify that one.
If you break it down, it's got a nice developmental hook: "I just threw up" works as a simple mini-gross reaction. But the recent (?) addition of the "a little bit" specificity and locational "in my mouth" gives it a tasty Farrelly-esque bit of observational juice. The problem is that it's become completely played out. I was kinda disappointed to hear Poehler adlib it in on Conan last month. But it got me thinking.
Any of you yahoos know? If not, look for #004 to document what the Ask.Mefites can scrounge up. I'm hoping it goes back to like 1939.
