My stars and bars!
Posted by Patty on March 16, 2000
I've heard the expression "my stars and bars!" as an exclamation, from the 1930's or 40's I think. It shows up in movies from that period, usually spoken by a young woman from a small town or from the countryside. Does anyone know how it originated?
Also, I think there are some other expressions that start with "My ..." from the same era. Know any of those?
