Shakespeare coined it

It’s a free country, you know!
In our correct and timid precincts,
must we piously desist from all immodesty?
Is politeness so de rigueur?
What if we nudged and elbowed,
broke a flowerpot,
badgered and jostled,
were drunk and disorderly,
peed in backstreets,
guilty of unmannerly riot,
caused affray,
waylaid, bearded and mugged,
(ambushing footpads all),
were cutpurses to wealth,
sallied forth, boys, all Francis Drake and got Elizabethan!!
Took the language by the throat
and showed our arses to the moon?

Then where would we be?

In England?
