Who Makes Up This Stuff?

cat's whiskers

n
1. the cat's whiskers the cat's pyjamas person or thing that is excellent or superior


"The exact origin of the English saying cat’s whiskers is debated. Some believe that the term, along with the similar cat’s meow, have their origin in the girls' boarding schools of the 19th century."

Lonely girls in boarding schools haven't got anything over the "nothing better to do people" who make up ridiculous words and sayings for Urban Dictionary...

My opinion only of course...
