Hey, I like to say this and someone at work asked be whence it came, and I realized i didn't know. Someone else said that Andrew Dice Clay says it a lot, which don't mean much to me, but I woundered where this expression started?

Well I always thought it grew out of the standard drum rimshot but that's just a WAG.

Beekman ? Sat the show? Good God!!! Larry Fine messin around in a lab!! And with a giant rat yet. It's the end of the world as we know it! What a movie, The Pie That Creamed the World. Fine's revenge for always being the 3rd Stooge. Even with Besser, all he ever got to do was say " Ah,leave him alone."

James Caan uses the phrase in "The Godfather" when he tells Al Pacino how difficult it will be to kill "The Turk" and the police captain. Something along the lines of "You gotta get up close to the guy and 'bodda bing' you blow his brains out."

Or something like that.

I've always associated this expression with the Italians from Brooklyn. It's the kind of thing Joe Peshi or Vinnie Barbarino would say.

People, people! Repeat after me:

"Bada-bing"

Don't you watch The Sopranos?

I've always assumed it was the verbalization of a rim-shot.

Ok, good answers all, I had the feeling it came from some sort of East Coast/jersey/new york/italian kinda thing, anyone know an earlier use than The Godfather?

Earliest cite:
Genesis 3:24 -- "And from the nothingness, He created light, bada-bing bada-boom. And he saw that it was good."

I don't know about its origins, or care. In fact

I HEREBY BANISH THIS PHRASE FROM THE ENGLISH AND ALL OTHER LANGUAGES OF THE UNIVERSE.

Thank you.

Yes; and the verbalization of the OP was originally no doubt ba-da-boom, ba-da-bing, not the other way around.(People have been saying it without knowing what they were saying). Bing=ksssh, although ksssh comes closer.
