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

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

I always thought it was used in the lemon squeezy detergent ads in the UK in the 1970s. As I recall, a little girl complains to her aunt that the dishes are greasy. Her mother admonishes her and then produces the Lemon Squeezy. The results are of course astoundingly successful and the girl says "easy peasy lemon squeezy". But then maybe I am dreaming!
