Why "Three Parts Foolish?"

Somewhere around 1980, I heard an interview where the subject described an Australian phrase where a person could dismiss something as being "A quarter flash and three parts foolish." Marv and Rindy Ross appropriated the first part of the saying for their band Quarterflash. Indeed, it was Rindy Ross who was the subject of the interview. It has stuck with me all these years, much like Quarterflash, whose music is aging equisitely well.

I feel I will be lucky if many of my posts reach the threshold of being 25% flash, and, well, I'm certain to exceed 75% foolish on a regular basis.
