You're darn tootin'

Posted by Steve Donnelly on September 15, 2005

Wondering about the origin of the phrase "You're darn tootin'" meaning roughly "damn right!" or enthusiastic agreement with what someone has just said. There is a Laurel and Hardy short by this name from 1927 or so, I wonder if that is the origin of the expression or if it was already in use and they named their film after it.
