This phrase seems to need at least one source. 19:46, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

I think it was derived from a Monty Python sketch, unless there is an earlier usage.

Been around a little longer than that sketch. some examples. Conrad.Irwin 14:40, 9 November 2008 (UTC)


Changed pronunciation as best as possible to reflect the fact that this phrase consists of two two-syllable intonation units in sequence with the nucleus on the second syllable in both cases. Used to be known as level stress; what was given could only be interpreted as forestress. BadenBrit 06.08.2017.

@BadenBrit: that seems a bit strange. Do people really emphasize the second and the fourth word? — SGconlaw (talk) 14:28, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
