  1. Letterkenny is new.
    I’m Canadian and used to use this expression a lot back in the 80s. I think my dad used to say it to hurry me and my brother up getting ready to go out.
    The commercials for this season of Letterkenny reminded me of it; but it’s in no way unique to the show.
    Walk up to any Canadian over 45 and say pitter patter, I bet 9/10 would respond “let’s get at ‘er” 😉
