"Had the biscuit"—the missuz seems to think that this is a Saskatchewan expression. Admittedly, to me it does seem like the kind of dorky quasi-folksy thing that muh people do say, but I don't know if it is, in fact, a regionalism. So, anyone else grow up with the expression?
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I feel that, had he lived, John Lennon would have loved Donkey Kong.

If so, yes.

You mean, like if someone asks me "What did you have for breakfast?" and I respond "I had the biscuit?"

Nope, it means finished or fucked. E.g.,
"So, Harvey, how's your truck running?"
"The fucker's had the biscuit. No way I'll be able to go to the Chickenfoot show."
Endut! Hoch Hech!
