: "Shot in the head". We use this phrase to express the fact that you don't really like something. Example, I was not shot in the head with that dress she wore. I have tried to reasonably think about how it may have originated, but am at a loss. Any ideas?


Well, it does represent (extreme) finality. I am not totally, finally convinced....
