: I'm looking for the source for the phrase "Chaos! Panic! Disorder! My work here is done." It is used on bumper stickers and all over the internet, does anyone know who originally said it? Thanks
Design #5607 in the Sept.-Dec. 1997 catalogue of Ephemera, Inc., is
CHAOS, PANIC & DISORDER
MY WORK HERE IS DONE
Presumably, a writer for Ephemera, in-house or free-lance, made it up. Button writers sometimes plagiarize, however (no, they're not supposed to).
Ephemera has a website. Somebody there might be able to tell you who originated the slogan.
