: As the subject imples,what the hell does this meanand where does it come from?Please help I am in a dire conflict with my girlfiend.
The correct form is "How do you like them apples?" The phrase is cousin to "Put that in your pipe and smoke it!", and to "How about THAT?" (as opposed to the rather modern slang expression, "How ABOUT that?"), and so "So there!", simple and enduring. SS
