In my childhood home, "born in a barn" referred exclusively

If'n I had'na ever heard the explanation following use of this expression,
I could have easily associated it (confused it) with the Christmas story
and interpreted it to mean, "you think you're so high and mighty" or "do
you think you're so special", or, "who do you think you are - God?"
