  • "Iíve seen six rabbits in a tree"

    My brother came back from the USA after spending 20 or so years in South Texas. He picked up the following expression, 'Iíve seen six rabbits in a tree, but I ain't never seen that before.'

    I am trying to trace down the origins of this idiom. Has anyone else encountered it or a variation on it? Of course, the expression "I've seen alot of things in this world but..." and variants is widely known, but here I am interested in the specific 'six rabbits in a tree' variant.

    No guesses, please. Looking for concrete instances of it in use. Google shows now hits for the phrase "Iíve seen six rabbits in a tree" so I suspect that it may be highly idiosyncratic.
