The phrase is a slang which originated in the Native American way of speaking but is now popular throughout the world. It is a new phrase and has been in existence since a few decades only.
The slang came about when ‘betting’ on things to prove themselves was common and the answer to a bet would always be yes. ‘Would you take the bet?’ and ‘yes’ hence became synonyms in this phrase because no young person could say no to a bet and still be able to be a respectable member of the group.
