: Can you please tell me how the term "I have to pee like a Russian race horse" originated? I've looked online and can only find the meaning, but not the origin.

Horses urinate in large volume and with force. The expression I have heard is "p** like a pack mule." Maybe a race horse would rattle the leaves even more and "Russian" was added for alliteration.
