“We did what we did, we didn’t do what we didn’t do, and the result was what happened.”
It's a horse-racing term, originally....
I'm willing to swear I used to know an American equivalent, but have been married so long I forget what it is. Or was.All the American analogues seem to be laden with negative connotations. Maybe echidne would know, if an economist can be said to know anything.The closest I can think of from pop culture is Jon Lovitt to Tom Hanks in Big, talking about a co-worker who will (something like) "look her legs around you until you scream for mercy."At which point Hanks's character says he'll be certain to stay away from her.
