: : : Anyone know how this came to being? I was recently used in Austin Powers: Goldmember.

: : Found that it should read "Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy".

: certainly "easy-peasy" has been around for 30+ years, I remember using it as a kid. the "lemon-squeazy" bit is less obvious - I think we used to say that as kids too. I'm almost wondering if it was from an old detergent advert.

As a british Chef explained to me this very evenint, "what's easier than squeezing a lemon" -- look, it all rhymes, why think about it too much.
