in thread Acronyms seen in the Monastery

      I believe the phrase originated as a reference to the English Queen.

I seem to remember that as well. I also remember one of the British shows (Rumpold of the Bailey?) that shows here in the states on PBS having its main character refer to his wife that way. I started seeing it in other chat contexts as well prior to my being with PM.

The phrase and its associated abbreviation have gotten around.
