Sorry Charlie Ross

Posted by Lisa on September 25, 2003

Anyone familiar with the origins of the phrase "sorry Charlie Ross"?

My mother used it as a stage-one warning ("touch that and you'll be a sorry Charlie Ross!") and it was only when my own kids questioned it that I thought to
wonder what it meant!
