I heard one of the old timers at work say this today in regard to a co-workers attitude.

It got me thinking of the roots of the phrase. What the hell does it mean ? and Where did it come from?

Anybody have an idea?

Might he have meant "...hair up his ass"?

No its one of my rotts - never really noticed until you mentioned it!

Okay been doing some research - why? Even I don't know.

Seems the phrase can and has been used either way - hair up/hair across, and in different terms - Actually you weren't the first person to ask this question, a few other discussion boards came up with folks asking the same thing.

I guess it has something to do with a hairy starfish causing PMS like symptoms in a man
