    Default Meaning of an expression

    In the picture "The Man Who Would Be a King" I heard the following expression:

    (Daniel Dravot, Peachy Carnehan): God's holy trousers!

    I would like to know its real meaning and also its usage.

    Thanks a lot!

    Default Re: Meaning of an expression

    Welcome to the forums.

    It has no meaning. It is merely an exclamation of surprise at something.
