"Bob's Your Uncle" is a British expression used to mean "everything is good", but most people don't know its origin. In 1877, British Prime Minister Robert Cecil, appointed his nephew as Minister for Ireland. The press had a field day when he referred to the Prime Minister as "Uncle Bob". That's how "Bob's Your Uncle" became a popular phrase applied to sum up any positive situation. - www.bobsyouruncle.com Anybody got one for "bobistheoilguy"?
