    I think it was probably my grandad! Others from him were How Hi (is a Chinaman), and Is-a-bell Necessary (on a bicycle) and my all time favourite as a very little girl - swear words that weren't:
    I chased a bug around a hill,
    I'll have his blood, he knows I will...​
    (Not to be said when Mummy or Grandma were around though...:D)

    But he also taught me a whole lot of useful stuff as well!

    Pip Emma ( as in p.m. = afternoon; used in signals to clarify letters used in signals etc. But also on radio when announcing the time during WW2, which is where I heard it regularly as a very tiny child and decided it was a great name for one of my - at that time very few - dolls!)
