Arthur
: not know whether you are Arthur or Martha To be in a state of confusion, as in this comment in an Australian state parliament-'The Leader of the Opposition does not know whether he is Arthur or Martha, Hekyll or Jekyll, coming or going'. The phrase was first recorded in 1957. In recent years it has also been used with reference to gender confusion, and in this sense it has been exported to other countries.
