Where does this expression come from? I saw it used on the forum and it made me giggle.
I know it’s the polite way of saying f-off, but is this a British saying…Australian?
England for sure.
In Canada we say “Take off, eh!”…or “Get Bent!”.
I think @SethTheNew said it. He sounds like someone who would say it.
Yep ! I say it lol.
Comes from the old english term of sodomite.
Sod in Canada is a wet piece of fresh grass. I thought the term meant something like “Go chew on a piece of sod”… or something like that.
Sod - off is thought to derive "from the Middle Ages with the turf-dwellers of Romford (Essex on the poor side of London). The term " sod off " was thus coined to mean “The door is open, feel free to leave”.
Yep that sounds about right - I always thought it was “get off my land” being sod being the piece of earth your on.
I’ve heard “get bent” a lot when I was in Canada. Also an alternative: ■■■■ off"
The latter seems to get used by young adults mostly, especially in uni
