Fun Phrase Friday: “For Crying Out Loud”

Happy Friday!
This weeks fun phrase is “For crying out loud!”

Meaning: Oh, for heaven’s sake; what your saying (or doing) is preposterous.

History: The saying is a euphemism (also describable as a minced oath) for “For Christ’s sake!” and seems to have coined, probably in the United States, about 90 years ago.
