: Does anyone know where the phrase "the juice aint worth the squeeze" originated. Ive seen it as "isn't" however, it is mostly used using the word 'aint'. I googled it and found many thousands of references, but nothing here in the Phrase Thesaurus. Anyone know???

Well, the first time I read it was in "Close Range: Wyoming Stories," a short story collection by Annie Proulx.
