您答對了 -- 應該選自己為最佳解答:-)
Red-handed doesn't have a mythical origin however - it is a straightforward allusion to having blood on one's hands after the execution of a murder or a poaching session. The term originates, not from Northern Ireland , but from a country not so far from there, socially and geographically, i.e. Scotland . An earlier form of 'red-handed', simply 'red hand', dates back to a usage in the Scottish Acts of Parliament of James I, 1432.

Thanks, Jim. As Prisoner would say, I am an expert on this from experience...except that I did not execute anybody:-)

How can one be red-handed with smoking gun when she is taking a bath (with a rabbit)? Man, that rabbit must be red-handed, if not with smoking gun!
