Being called Arthur !

Well-known expression ! Who never heard !? You'll get called Arthur !

It would come from the Second World War and would refer to the & rsquo; German occupation in France which fixed a curfew 20 hours. The name “Arthur” is a German strain “eight o'clock'” (“20 hours”) that German patrols shouted to potential laggards.
