Okay, therefore my 2 friends and also I because that over a month have been debating and feverishly browsing the net for where this saying come from. We're convinced its indigenous a movie or a television show, and we can't because that the life the us number it out. It's driving us fucking crazy and we're wasting hrs of time in ~ work searching for the answer. Hell, we're shedding sleep over this shit. The three of us understand we've heard the precise dialogue, however have no idea where. Probably it's a monster coincidence, probably it's not. Someone aid us please!!

I uncovered those present in a magazine article from 1935 (except it's slightly different; the native \"are you\" space not repeated). So I expect that little of dialog has actually been repeated plenty of times because then, and might be even older.

https://books.google.com/books?id=Tb4iAQAAMAAJ&q=%22Are+you+a+man,+or+a+mouse?%22+%22I%27m+a+mouse!%22

Edit: and also the question \"Are you a man or a mouse?\" goes earlier at the very least as much as 1912:

https://books.google.com/books?id=2lkxAQAAMAAJ&pg=RA4-PA50&dq=\"Are+you+a+man,+or+a+mouse?\"

And the slightly much longer version: \"Are you a male or are you a mouse?\" goes earlier to 1915:

https://books.google.com/books?id=KHtMAAAAMAAJ&pg=RA4-PA40&dq=\"Are+you+a+man,+or+are+you+a+mouse?\"

It’s an old joke. I’d think about Abbott and Costello or The three Stooges as possible occurrences. Maybe even Bob expect or Jerry Lewis.

The publication you space thinking the is Of Mice and Men by man Steinbeck.

The title is take away from Robert Burns' city \"To a Mouse\", which reads: \"The best laid schemes o' mouse an' males / gang aft agley\". (The finest laid schemes the mice and also men / often go awry.)

I don't think it includes the heat OP is looking for, though.
