: An old friend who is 80 years of age uses a phrase when he gets you in a corner or has you down in a game of pool or is about to overcome you in some way. He says that he has heard the phrase for 70 years but he does not know the origin. When he gets you where he wants you, he says, now "your ass belongs to Joe Hayes"! Anyone ever heard it or know the origin?
I've looked in two regional English dictionaries and in Brewer's. No luck in finding this so far.
