Origin of "Chaps my Ass"

Posted by Brian on June 17, 2004

What is the orgin of Chaps my Ass? Does it come from those souls that have to break in new saddles on horses? If something really "chaps my ass", it meas to deeply irritate, and everyone knows that to have your ass irritating you is one of the more annoying areas to have irritated, the only other is the groin area.

If you have any other origins of this phrase, I would like to know them.
