OK. I've been asleep. I just read a thread over at Straightdope, where a poster said "of course, the bell can't be unrung now." That by itself wouldn't have caused me to wonder, but I heard an interview on NPR this morning where virtually the same phrase was used(which obviously stayed in my mind).
I understand the meaning. But, did someone just send out instructions by email that this is the phrase for May, or am I just living in my own little world. Some of you who read more/listen more than I may know. Any ideas who must have kicked off the (soon-to-be overused) phrase recently?
