: : My grandfather was fond of the phrase
: : "He/She/They should be shot with shit and hung for stinking." Origins please?

: I have never heard it. But I love it and am stealing it.

I've heard (and used) a variation here in Ireland: 'He should be shot with shovel-fulls (sic) of cow shit!' Sorry I don't know the origin.
