Hang from the ceiling and drip green,” a fannish epithet meaning “fuck off,” stems from “Born of Man and Woman,” a science fiction short story by Richard Matheson, originally published in the July 1950 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.

From Fancyclopedia 2, ca. 1959
(Matheson:Rapp) Objurgation -- meaning, roughly, "go soak your head" -- from "Born of Man and Woman"; given fannish currency by its use in the battles between the DSFL and the Wolverine Insurgents.
