: For at least the last fifty years this saying was and still is used in the Pittsburgh PA area, what does it mean and where did it come from ?

It might possibly have come from an off-color joke, not suitable for this site, whose punchline (in the version I heard) is "Fifteen dollars, same as downtown."
