Get your finger out

Posted by Brian Waters on November 24, 2007

What is the origin of the phrase 'get your finger out'. The first use of the phrase I remember was by Prince Phillip in, I think, the 60's. I do not recall anyone being shocked by it, just by his use of it, so perhaps it was quite old at the time.
