Is this a subtle cultural reference which I'm not getting, or were the phrases' later users simply borrowing from the earlier ones?

The only place I've ever seen this line is in the nearly-continuous thread on rec.humor about "Things not to say during sex". Dunno about it's origins.

And then their car turns into a pumpkin and they go back to live with their evil stepmother and stepsisters. The smart ones will leave a shoe at the office on their way out.

Sure, nudge, nudge, you'd NEVER use it NOW, right? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, grin, grin, know what I mean, say no more. Now, to telnet to cc.usu.edu and give it a try...

Following up to me makes you an official *something*, but you might not want to know what. To give you an idea, following up to Richard Wilson makes you Zadoc.
