  • According to phrases.org.uk (which I learned of here), first used by Steinbeck in "The Grapes of Wrath":

    Grampa walked up and slapped Tom on the chest, and his eyes grinned with affection and pride. "How are ya, Tommy?"
    "O.K.," said Tom. "How ya keepin' yaself?"
    "Full a piss an' vinegar," said Grampa.
