My grandmother says it. Makes no sense.
Makes perfect sense since you know about the patent medicine company that sold Carter's Little Liver Pills until the 1960s when they were forced to change the name due to the fact that the snake oil didn't actually have anything to do with the liver. It was a very heavily advertised product in rural areas, especially the south. Carter’s Little Liver Pills - Picture - MSN Encarta

Brings up an interesting point tho. We are debating probably unknown origins. Almost any ancient saying has an unknown origin - they are just guessed at really.
Actually, I learned/was taught in an American university all about how the "Rule of Thumb" being attributed to beating your wife, was a good example of a urban legend spread. We looked into early writings of the phrase, and through history to show that it is pretty clear why people today believe it came from beating your wife, but just isn't true.

So we are pitting the American university system against the New Zealand one. It just HELPS that I have every internet source except for email spam forwards on my side.

To work in some more phrases,
"You have diddly squat"
But, it appears "we are at loggerheads". But since this thread is "going to hell in a handbasket", for me, "that's all she wrote" on the subject.

Peace in the middle east

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they used to use rabbits to check if a woman was pregnant. They would inject the woman's urine into a female rabbit, and then look at the rabbit's ovaries a few days later - if the woman was preggo then the rabbit's ovaries would be different.

My best guess was thanking someones mother for rabbits for eating

I googled it I'm enlightened now
