What is the meaning?

Postby vadon » Mon Apr 06, 2009 6:56 pm

This is from Laurel & Hardy's movie "Way Out West", where an angry man in the bar says: "Get a piece of fat and slide off!". I found nothing in any dictionary, Google gave me this as some forum users' moto.

The angry man talks to bar owner who says: "Gentlemen, it's my aim to give you the best
entertainment money can buy. I've brought here at great expense..."

The angry man is mocking someone by telling them to go away.

He is refering to animal fat used in cooking. The idea is the person he was speaking with should ride the fat like someone would a sled.

Seems to me it means

Hey worm, be as small as you can and get out of my sight.
