    "I'm STILL scratching my head on that one. My coworkers friends and family use that expression as a joke alllll the time. And it's NEVER been negative."

    Its a figure of speech. There are native speakers that even cant understand those. And here are even many that arent even native speakers. So I hope that helps you to understand the ruckus about a figure of speech.

      But as I and others tried pointing it out, it was ignored. Instead it was just rage-rage-rage. And some people in other threads even claimed they were native English speakers that knew the phrase and were offended. Sure, if you're German and just read those exact words I could understand it... but some were clearly English speakers raging about... nothing.
