When I picked up my pre-teenage boys today at North Park Elementary
School (Hyde Park, NY) I cornered the director of physical education at
the High School. He has heard it a lot. Tried it on his son
(kindercarten) and got a possitive response. Further inquiry about the
preference for "by accident" got another affirmative. Maybe some
people outgrow it and others don't.
The math tutor has heard it, too.
The principal has heard it and added that "We correct it when we
encounter it." (interesting!)
