: : : Does anyone know the origin of the phrase, Less chat more hat? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Thanks, BP
: : Guessing, as in put on your hat and leave? (Here's your hat, what's your hurry.)
: Homer said this in a Simpson's episode ("Lisa the Iconoclast"). I don't know if this is the original source or if an existing phrase was popularised via its use on the show. Pamela
A post on av.com says:
Either "less chat, more hat" or "less chat, more splat" to tell someone to stop talking and just get on with the task at hand.
