Know what it means? Probably not, since I think our family made it up. Learn it, since it can come in handy sometimes.
As a joke, my husband taught my kids the lovely phrase “Shut your pie hole!” It became a joke with us, but it started being said a bit too frequently. And some people truly didn’t appreciate the humor of our kids saying it. Said in jest, we think it’s funny.
So, we shortened it to S-Y-P-H. Then we don’t offend everyone who hears it. And we still think it’s funny.
It became so popular on my daughter’s 3-v-3 soccer team, S-Y-P-H may be their new team name. Others might not get it, unless they ask, but we will.
So say it proudly, when the need arises: S-Y-P-H or the real thing “Shut your pie hole!” C
