: Has anyone ever heard "by granny" or "I'll be dipped"? I have heard them all my life,but don't really know what they mean.

I've heard "I'll be dipped." I wonder if dipped refers to sheep dipped. I've also heard, "I'll be dipped in sh*t." "By granny." Not sure. I have a vague notion that I've heard "By gosh and by granny." But that could be a false memory.
