The phrase came around in the summer of 2006. Jimmy Westminster*, Sassy Cassie*, OJ* and co were having a lazy day at the park. OJ's sister's boyfriend's cat is called norris and OJ was talking about naming his pet plastic dinosaur Bubba Norris. Sassy misheard him and thought he had said Proper Norris. This then resulted in a chorus of Proper Norris in Jamacian/Scouse accents and Jimmy W decided that proper norris would be a good way to describe things that were good. Sassy agreed. Hence, the creation of Proper Norris.
Please refer to the myspace group, proper norris.
