etymology of who's your daddy[edit]

There is an unsupported assertion in the Etymology that a BDSM sense predates other usage. A quick review of b.g.c. does not yield evidence. DCDuring TALK 11:38, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

The closest I found was: [1]. Not specifically related to the phrase, though. Pingku 17:13, 31 October 2009 (UTC)


more ety[edit]

An IP added a load more unsupported etymology which I have removed. Here it is: "Could be related to funeral games amusements in Ireland where an master of ceremonies, 'Daddy', held court ordering the players to perform several acts, 'All round your Daddy, and the last man marked!". Many of these games were symbolic of reproduction, emphasising the continuation of life in the face of death. Some could have had such 'orders' etc., See Henry Morris, 'Irish Wake Games', in the Irish folklore journal Bealoideas 8:2, 123-141, 1938 or Sean O Suilleabhain, Irish Wake Amusements. Interesting theory." Equinox 00:14, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
