Starter for ten

Posted by Dale on May 14, 2005

I'm wondering where the expression "starter for ten" came from, and what exactly does it mean? My best guess is that it indicates an easy question is about to follow. I've heard this among Brits, but being a native Texan, it's not used much in these parts.
