A phrase derived from the fascinating high school course, "Coming Apart: The US in the 1960s." The phrase is remarkably successful at irritating others when injected constantly into conversation especially when its use does not make sense. Potatoes and anchors are particularly sensitive to the phrase and exhibit signs of repulsion and are prone to violent behavior upon hearing it.
