Phrases And Their Origins

Stick It Up Your Arse

The most famous usage of this expression appears in the film "Withnail & I" in which Richard E. Grant remarks, "Two quid? You can stick it up your arse and fuck off while your doing it!"

But we hear the phrase almost everywhere we go these days, the pet shop, the police station, the colonic irrigation clinic. So what is its derivation?

The winner gets a stick.

winner!

I had never heard this particular phrase before, so I did some digging around. Although the direct derivation has been lost, lexicographers are united in the belief that it is thuggian in origin and means to place a large spikey and supposedly extremely uncomfortable fruit (native to New Zealand and Southern Africa) up the rectum of a poor unfortunate human being.

Although it is not certain whether this practice was a punishment, ritual, a gentleman's wager, a sexual practice or just a foolish brag that went awry, it is now more of a general insult than anything else.
