: I remember this expression being used to say that I haven't heard anything. I was curious as to the origin and if I have it correct.

Never heard that, but it reminds me of the phrase 'wouldn't say boo to a goose' to refer to a shy person. I don't understand that, either - why would anyone want to say boo to a goose?
