: Does anyone know where You can't kid a kidder came from, when was it first used and what does it mean?
: I think it means you can't fool "the kid" or "person" because they already know the tricks.
: So if someone was trying to con a con man, the con man would say you can't kid a kidder.
: Is this right?
Yes, that's right. You can't fool a fooler. I don't know the origin.
