Heard "Yikes" quite a bit when I was young, but not the whole phrase ever as far as I recall.

Not an expression I've come across before, but then I'm a lot older than you are.

Discovered, to my joy today, that a newly dumped dog turd is a Steaming Stanley. I don't know quite why I chortled so much.

I've never heard of the expression although an old one I often use is 'Gordon Bennett!'
One from my childhood.
