Search me! I don't know!

Posted by Serge Liberman on February 17, 2005

The meaning of this phrase given in response to a question requesting information is, I believe, very widely known. But does anyone know its origins, who first coined it and under what circumstances.
For my part, Search me, I don't know. Or I wouldn't be asking the question.

Serge.
