Bush Lets War Widow Punch His Arm Once

Quote:
WASHINGTON"In an unprecedented gesture of apology, President Bush allowed widow Mary Holt, 32, to punch him once on the left arm Monday as retribution for the death of her husband, Marine Pfc. David Holt, who was killed in a 2007 roadside bomb explosion outside Fallujah.

@Robert Gentel,
I bet he wouldn't let the woman's cousin, the bricklayer hit his arm.

I thought that I understood this use, dlowan, when you had used it before but I'm not so sure now. Is it like Gus's recent "Christ on a cracker"? Is it used for a number of situations, surprise, shock, to suggest that some situation is really sad [this is what I thought its use was]?

@JTT,
I've always heard it as a bastardization of the "Jesus Christ!" ejaculation.

@JTT,
It is the shortest verse in the bible.

(John 11:35 )

And, as Robert has said, it is an ejeculation of the ilk of "Jesus Christ" and such.

However, I quite like the implication that the horror one has experienced is felt to be so great as to cause a putative alleged offspring of one of the manifestations of primitive humanity's fearful projections onto the screen of the illimitless void to cry out in anguish.

I could, of course, simply have said "bugger".

Enjoying as we speak.
