Same old same old

Posted by John on October 08, 2004

In post WWII occupied Japan and Korea many japenglish words were used. One of the most usefl was "samo-samo".This just meant "the same" or the "same way". over the last 50 years I have heard "samo-samo" morph into "same-old same-old" to be more of an english term
