GUEST,Willa Help: Kicking Up Bob's A-Dying? (39) RE: Help: Kicking Up Bob's A-Dying? 29 Aug 01

Now that really takes me back. I've never heard the origin of the phrase, or thought to question it, but in my mother's family (the men were fishermen for many generations) making a tremendous fuss was referred to as 'playing up bob's i dy'. I've never seen it written, so that's the nearest I can get to it.
