What is the etymology of the sarcastic expression much, as in "gee, projection much?" How long has it been around? Title comes from a line I remember in the movie Manhunter.

The interesting thing is that your title choice is probably not an example of what your looking for, as Lecter is probably very interested in Will’s dreams — as an egotist and a sociopath he’d be delighted to learn that Graham was still having nightmares years later.
