Al: "I already called. I got Rick Cool himself."

BUD: "Gee, Rick Cool huh? Did Bobby 23 Skidoo quit?"

From Wikipedia :

23 skidoo (sometimes 23 skiddoo) is an American slang phrase popularized during the early twentieth century, first attested before World War I and becoming popular during the 1920s. It generally refers to leaving quickly, being forced to leave quickly by someone else, or taking advantage of a propitious opportunity to leave, that is, "getting [out] while the getting's good." The exact origin of the phrase is uncertain. 23 skidoo has been described as "perhaps the first truly national fad expression and one of the most popular fad expressions to appear in the U.S," to the extent that "Pennants and arm-bands at shore resorts, parks, and county fairs bore either [23] or the word 'Skiddoo.'"

I knew the phrase was from the twenties and I know some oldtimers who recall the phrase but I have never heard it used. I think I might try to find a context to use it, bring it back.

hi Dr Shoe,

Lets not forget the more-often used descendant of that word .... Skee-daddle (sp) when one is 23-skidooing...

You know maybe it is, but when I looked up skedaddle cause I had the same thought, it said that skedaddle dated to the 16th cen.

Hi Dr Shoe,

Who knows.. ? It would not surprise me if the word origin was around the
Crusades and Jousting Knights of the Round Table..
but that might be another topic like Ske-wering ones' opponent on the end of a Lance.

MAybe 23-skidoo is a military term, meaning.. leaving the party to go home at 11:00 PM

What is it? Is Oprah right? Are you a big, fat woman? All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45... the record or the gun... I'll even settle for the damn malt liquor.
