: I'm reliably informed that the actual phrase used is 22 Skidoo, which, if you roll it around your mouth a couple of times makes a little more sense. Thanks to the Guardian for linking through to your explanation!

Perhaps your informants are less reliable than you think. While 22 may be more euphonious, the usage was always 23.
