People have been cutting the cheese since the 1950s- more recent than I thought. Interestingly, people were cutting a rug for a couple of decades before anyone is documented cutting the cheese.

Boondock3806: Wye Knott: Boondock3806: neongoats: I'd be interested in finding out where "Jesus Christ on a bicycle" came from, but only enough to post about it, not enough to go actually looking.

I always heard it as Jesus Christ on a crutch.

I'm curious what his middle initials htf stand for.

I haven't heard either of these two, but one of my favorite exclamations is "Christ on a cracker!"

Sounds racist. Jesus wasn't white, you know.


Mary Magdalene may have been.
