Who is Sam Hill?

Who is Sam Hill and why do I blame him for everything?

One of my boys walks behind the other and pops him on the head...."What in the Sam Hill did you do that for?"

TV messes  up......"What in the Sam Hill is wrong now?"

I don't like American Idol results...."Why in the Sam Hill is that person still here?"

One of the kids mumbles under his breath...."What in the Sam Hill did you say?"

A driver blows his horn at me........."What in the Sam Hill is YOUR problem?"  (Ok, sometimes that isn't ALL I say.)

You get the idea.  Who in the Sam Hill is this person and why have I been blaming him all this time?!

Sam Hill is an American English slang phrase, a euphemism or minced oath for "the devil" or "he&@" personified (as in, "What in the Sam Hill is that?").

Thank you!!! I catch myself saying it all the time and wondered how it came to be.
