: Anyone know the origin of the phrase 'The bee's knees', used to describe something that is well done/made or brilliant.
: Is it as I suspect it is derived from the word 'business' - as in "it's the business!", which becomes "it's the bee's kness!", possibly as a result of a particular accent put upon it? Maybe German or French?
: Have I just answered my own question?
Try The bee's knees
