Shake a leg
Posted by Ed Stansell on September 20, 2002
Your origin on this refers
to showing a leg to prove your awake. That may be so, but I doubt it has any connection
with "shake a leg". I think a more reasonable explanation of this would be to
run. We do sort of shake our legs when we run. In the US, it means to hurry, or
make it snappy.
