Yes, I believe it's short for Weigh Anchor, an old naval expression, similar to TOSSER , the tosser  the person who used to throw the mooring ropes up to the jetty so they could tie up an incoming vessel! He looks like he could be an occasional tosser even now!🤭

I was thinking the other day, YESSS I do do that sometimes🤔 I was thinking the other day about the silly things mothers and grannies used to say, I'm sure most people have had something similar said to them by a well meaning relative when they were younger!

'Have you seen the inside of your ears'?

'Who's eaten all the apples? they don't grow on trees you know'!

'Get out of that tree, if you fall out of it and break both your legs, don't come running to me'!

'If I've told you once, I've told you a million times, don't exaggerate'!

'Go to the butcher's and get me a sheep's head for the stew, tell him to leave the eyes in, it's got to see us through the week'!

'Take this button next door and ask the lady to sew a shirt on it'!

'Take this toilet roll back to the shop and get our money back, if he asks why? tell him our visitors aren't coming now'!

'Always wear clean underwear, you never know when you might get hit by a bus'! { If you WERE hit by a bus, how long do you think your underwear would stay clean? }🥴

A kid about 14 was sitting on a wall eating sweets, a bloke walking by said 'hey son, you won't live to a ripe old age eating all those sweets'! The kid said 'Well my granddad is still alive, and he's 96'! The bloke said 'wow, does he eat lots of sweets then'? The kid said 'No, but he does know how to mind his own fuckin' business'!🥴
