I looked up the meaning of the phrase "go figure" at:


and is defined as:

"used when you tell someone a fact and you then want to say that the fact is surprising or strange or stupid: It's a terrible movie and it made $200 million. Go figure!"

Does anyone know how the phrase originated? Does it imply go and try to figure it out because it doesn't make any sense to me?
From your website link: This expands to "Go and figure it out", and means: "The reasons for the fact just stated are unknown and possibly unknowable. You can waste your time thinking about what they might be, if you choose, but you're not likely to accomplish anything." (Kivi Shapiro)

Excellent! Now it makes a lot of sense.
