Subject: Re: "so do me something"

| Is anyone familiar with the phrase, "So do me something" used

| as a retort? Know anything about the origin? sounds familiar. And when I read it, I "hear" it with a Yiddish

accent, so perhaps it's a calque of a Yiddish expression. Just a guess,

but...ya never know.

I'm reminded of Nathan Detroit in _Guys & Dolls_ singing "Sue Me"--"Call

a lawyer and sue me, sue me, what can ya do me, I love you . . ."
