METRIC MIKEY’S WEDNESDAY WORD

“Bob’s your uncle!”

Okay, so it is words – plural, and it has nothing to do with analytics – or maybe it does, as it came up on an analytic call today.

From Wikipedia, “”Bob’s your uncle” is a phrase commonly used in Ireland, the United Kingdom and Commonwealth countries that means “and there it is” or “and there you have it” or “It’s done”. Typically, someone says it to conclude a set of simple instructions or when a result is reached. The meaning is similar to that of the French expression “et voil√†!” or the American “easy as pie” or “piece of cake”.”

I had only ever heard of that phrase two times in my life – one time, a store in Savannah and the other time, well, my Uncle Bob. So, yeah – Bob is my uncle. Easy as pie.
