Ooh, the phrase has mutated!  Here in Dublin, we were using the phrase "so
far into the closet, he's in Narnia" about 10 years ago.  How nice to see it
becoming part of the language (you know it's "arrived" when it starts
changing!).  I like this mutation, too; it has a better rhythm than the
original.
