: I recently used the expression 'running round like a blue arse fly' to an American who asked me about the origin of this expression. Can anyone help me put him (and me) out of our misery?? Thanks.
Origin I don't know, but the fly in question is a bluebottle. Strange expression as they don't normally run anywhere.
