Say boo to a goose

Posted by barbara on April 28, 2011 at 11:05

We have a discussion raging about the correct phrase. My version (American) ...say boo to a goose...
Suggested local (English) version ... say boo to a ghost...

I see the logic in the UK version, but that's just not how we say it. Where does this come from?
