I wonder if the word"happy feet" is an idiom or not? What does it mean?
I saw that in a movie about penguins. "Happy Feet"
it was the name of a movie.
If I'm not mistaken, "Happy Feet" was part of a comedy bit that Steve Martin did in the mid-1970s. In the middle of a bunch of silly jokes, Martin would get a frightened look on his face and say, "Oh no! I've got...I've got...Happy Feet!" then he would start dancing uncontrollably (and badly).
I guess it was funnier in the watching than it is in the telling.
Oh THANK you, mykwyner. I knew I'd heard it somewhere before.
Many posters here may be too young to remember Steve Martin's early routines.
