Het up (yes yes I know it's been asked before, but not this question, so don't get all het up)

Posted by Lotg on February 06, 2004

Yes I did find this in the PF browser and some other places too. And I know that 'het' is derived from hot, and it means not to get all worked up or heated up, etc. etc.

What I'd like to know though, that I couldn't find, is where it originated. It sounds like something that would have come from America. But am I wrong, is it older than that, or from some other beginnings?
