Here in Athens, we have a local band named In Like Flynn. So when some guy in a bar told me "You're in like flynn," I thought it was just a unique version of "Hey baby, what's your sign?". At the time I didn't really know what he meant; I just figured that maybe he was suggesting I looked like someone who listened to that band. But then the other night my Mother used the phrase in our phone conversation, and I know she doesn't listen to that band! Elaine Green Linguistic Atlas Project The University of Georgia
