To push his nose past the judges' box

Posted by Judy on August 11, 2004

"I realized exactly what must be done if this Fink-Nottle was to be enabled to push his nose past the judges' box."
(PG Wodehouse, of coures :-) )

(It means more or less that Fink-Nottle will have the courage to do something)

What is the origin of this phrase?
