Well Marty and Kraig - hahahahaha, yes I've heard of the ole saying "For Pete sake". It did make it across the Appalachian mountains. I was just fooling with ya, since you left that door open. For what it's worth I did a quick Google search, and stole the following from one of the most profound authorities here in the good ole US of A; I stole it from Reader's Digest:

People started saying “for Pete’s sake” instead as early as 1903, according to the Oxford English Dictionary citations. But there’s no confirmed reason why people use Pete instead of Tom, Jim, or any other name for that matter. One speculative theory in the Morris Dictionary is that someone replaced Jesus or God with another religious figure—St. Peter. That theory isn’t as out there as these everyday phrases with dark origins.

Now that you know a bit more behind why people say, “for Pete’s sake,” you can celebrate For Pete’s Sake Day on February 26th. And don’t worry, this isn’t one of the words or phrases smart people don’t use.


I certainly didn't know that Feb. 26th was "For Pete's Sake Day" :roflol:
