: Any one help me with the origin of "Stone The Crows", tricky question asked by daughter.

: Crows in fields?

: Sleepy lookout in crowsnest?

Interesting. This doesn't seem to have made it here (to America) ... at least, I was totally unfamiliar with the expression. But some UK slang dictionaries list it, and an Australian slang dictionary lists it as "new." No clue to origin.
