: : I thought we had covered "your turn in the barrel" before, but I can't find it in the archives. Meaning? Origin?

: Mentioned in Archive 6 but not explained there. To get Archive 6, click on "Archive 7." Look for a post by Sauerkraut on Oct. 26.

I couldn't find it. I thought the phrase related to "shooting fish in a barrel." And "your turn in the barrel" meant it's your turn to the be publically criticized as in a staff meeting. But it seems like I remember someone saying the phrase had a vulgar meaning. If I find more in my references, I'll post again.
