Where do old fashioned phrases go? Why is it the last time I heard "Capital idea!" was when John Astin gave life to Gomez Addams in a 1960's sitcom? Do truckers still exclaim "Mercy sakes, great time o' day!" on channel 19?

I tell ya, that's the cat's pajamas.

Meaning something was too much effort for what you would get out of it.

Even a pissed up tramp like Colombo could Goolge that one.
