How long has this phrase been around? Did Zappa make it up? To my knowledge, he was the first to use it, but somehow I doubt it. If he did, however, then that's another thing he's added to the current pop culture landscape.

It's been around forever. Frank didn't invent it. It was a common schoolyard/locker room saying when I was in school.
