    A website that quotes another website says “hands down” comes from 19th century horse-racing, where a jockey, sure of victory, would relax as he crossed the finish line, with his hands holding the reins lowered. If that’s wrong, blame somebody who misquoted the OED.

    “Put it to a vote! Everyone who likes this coffee raise your hand."

    Why bother? It’s so obviously great that there’s no need to vote. Hands down.

    Poor Adam. Explaining this to Katy is not a “Hands Down” task.

    Hands down?

    Does that mean the coffee jumps out of the cup, galumphs across the table, and schlorps itself into your mouth?

    Not that I’ve ever had that happen …

    I just want to know what coffee he’s drinking! And don’t try to convince me that it’s Starbucks.

    I believe it was a directional signal in 15th Century brothels…
