I don't know what the origin of this phrase was, but I heard it at a LAN party I went to, and quickly adopted it.<br><br>You have to think of what it SOUNDS like, and how it serves as an alternative to saying that actual phrase.<br><br>And the actual phrase is "Jesus Christ!".<br><br>See? Doesn't "Cheese and Rice" sound a whole lot better?<br><br>Funnier too!<br><br>[color:red]Hold on...it's time for a</font color=red><br>

Ahh! thanks for the explanation. <br><br>At first, when you said you heard it at a LAN party, I was thinking you were going to say that cheese and rice is what they live off of at one! <br><br>

I honestly think it originated from Mormons in Utah. They (we?) have many of these 'morally acceptable' cuss word variations. I heard this one years ago.<br><br>

Mennonites and other left-wing (from teh 17th century,anyway) Protestant groups around here in PA use "cheese and crackers" in the same way. I'd never heard the rice version. Must be a southern saying <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"<br>

I was thinking of places where they grow rice, not of where you live! I know, that kind of thing doesn't make sense nowadasy--but I be that a history of the phrase would trace it down South.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"<br>
