: : I've been asked about this phrase, which I've not come across before:

: : "There are two kind of guys, stiffs and Georges."

: : Question is, who or what are the Georges?

: I think you'll find that Georges are "George IIIs". At which point the phrase takes on a whole new meaning.

That sounds plausible. Is that just a guess or have you come across the phrase before?
