    In British public (which means private - don't ask!) schools, and the military, it was a slang variant of `new boy'. This term surfaced in the newsgroup talk.bizarre and caught on and is now in wide use.

    It is an idiom.

    Maybe my question is a little out of the blue.


    = unexpected(ly).

    Ex: The terror attacks came out of the blue.
