: Does anyone know the origin of the phrase, "If the Queen of France had wheels she'd be a bicycle"?

I've not heard that version, although there are many variants of this. In Woody Allen's recent film 'Whatever works' there's the line "If Granny had wheels, she'd be a bicycle.".

I've no idea of the origin.
