Doonsbury cartoon at Slate: Kim asks Mike, “How’s your mom?”
Mike: hard to say. She may or may not have fractured her hip while line dancing with the notorious Crenshaw brothers who have now moved out to the farm to wait on her hand and foot until she recovers.
Kim: Wow! Your mom still brings it!
Mike: Please don’t say that.
Brings it gets a number of googlits in this idiom. “Justin of JustinTV brings it.” This high school sports headline “Shadle ‘brings it’” (with brings it in quotes). Access Hollywood Blog says that “Hayden brings it”
I suppose this could be short for “brings it on.” But the context suggests a shade difference.
Anyone heard of this?
edit: better link to the Doonesbury cartoon in question [I think]
