Lighter Origins: Coming Home from the Wake/Nellie Milkmaid (52* d) RE: Origins: Coming Home from the Wake/Nellie Milkmaid 08 Aug 20


Since a sexual "shoot the cat" fits well here, why look further?

If the phrase was well known, it would have been instantly recognized.

If not, people whose minds worked like ours (i.e., just about anyone who appreciated the song) would presumably think it was a hilarious neologism.
