- The CSS Shenandoah part is not corroborated by the Wikipedia article on the ship, so I've removed it. I think what remains is fine. - -sche (discuss) 22:03, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Supposed Australian etymology
The Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary makes the claim that this is of Australian origin, in "Mexican standoff" (retrieved 2009-12-19, original). I've removed this in edit 37047424, as there are clear US citations from the 19th century, given by OED, among others.
