Hell's teeth

Posted by Sally Price on January 28, 2011 at 20:00

What is the origin of the phrase "Hell's teeth"? I was born in Oxford of American parents, so I grew up in the US. But my mother says "Hell's teeth" when she can't open a jar or some other minor frustration occurs. I always thought she learned that in England.
