All tuckered out - again

Post by William Barclay » Mon May 02, 2005 9:51 am

I've seen earlier discussion on this phrase, and was surprised to find that there was no apparent association with eating or being over-fed.

I refer to the common English word “tucker/ to tuck” which refers to food to be consumed / to consume food.

I figured that if you were “all tuckered out”, then perhaps you had eaten too much and were feeling uncomfortably bloated and drowsy.

Is there any chance of this association?
