This is a pipe

Posted by Rachel on October 26, 2005

"This is a pipe" or "it's a pipe" I couldn't find it in the archives. Obviously it means that it's simple. Some people think that it possibly comes from "pipe dream" but I thought that it might be a shortening of "lead-pipe cinch" or something. Do you have any information on this?
