    Question Jesus H Christ on a popsicle stick

    Hello,

    I heard this expression in the movie Fletch.
    Jesus H Christ on a popsicle stick!
    What does it mean? Is it used when surprised/angry?

    Thank you.

    Re: Jesus H Christ on a popsicle stick

    It's a meaningless exclamation of surprise, using a moderately inoffensive profanity.

    Please note - some people may still find it an offensive profanity.

    Dear Olympian:

    I agree with all that Anglika has to say in her post.
    Also, the expression you quote is one of the latest in a very long line extending back to 'Christ!' or 'Jesus Christ!' as expressions of surprise, anger, pain, etc.
    From these came such variations as 'Jesus H. Christ!' (the H standing for nothing, as far as I know), 'Christ on a crutch!', 'Christ on a bike!', and many, many more. Again, please know that, while intended to be humorous, many people will find them offensive.

    best wishes,
    Petra
