: : : does anyone know where this saying comes from? and is it PEAS or PEASE??
: : Maybe it's 'peace'. The message being non-violence would be preferred over violence.
: could be, but I believe the saying means someone who is "getting above their station" maybe is a northern thing??
Google shows that the phrase is from Lancashire.
