Pack Sand

Posted by Jen on April 25, 2003

Was wondering if anyone knew the origin of the phrase "pack sand" as in "He made me mad so I told him to go pack sand." We think it maybe something to do with the military, but we are not really sure why it would be a euphamism for "go piss off". Any help insight would greatly be appreciated.
