  • I googled it and this is what I found:

    It's actually "had a wild hare", as in a rabbit.

    It's an American expression meaning to do something at the spur of the moment without really thinking, spontaneity. It originated from "had a wild hare up my ". If you had a wild rabbit in your backside... you'd probably jump without thinking. It most likely originated in the Mid-West where hare were commoner'n a fly on a horses' .. (and so was vulgar language). But as it was shaved down, it can now be used as "I had a wild hare to go to Vegas".

  • I've never heard that expression before. Maybe it's because I'm a New Englander?

  • I'm a New Englander and have always heard it but I have no idea where it comes from.
