: I heard someone say "Get down with the goose down!" I've got an idea what that means, what's the origin?

I don't know if there's a good answer, but I'll give you mine. I think this is an advertising play on a hip-hop expression, "get down with it," or "be down with it." In the form, "be down with it," it means be okay with it. "Get down with it" is more active, and implies (I think) interacting in a good way. But leave a lot of latitude in assessing my remarks for accuracy. Obviously the "down...down" is a play on words. I hope the ad was for pillows.
