Best Answer

To remove, end usage, or take something out or away. Despite ALL other posts suggesting the origin of this phrase there is only one true answer:

Chumley's, a famous and OLD New York speakeasy, is located at 86 Bedford Stuy During Prohibition, an entrance through an interior adjoined courtyard was used, as it provided privacy and discretion for customers.

As was (and is) a New York tradition, the cops were on the payroll of the bar and would give a ring to the bar that they were coming for a raid. The bartender would then give the command "86 everybody!", which meant that everyone should hightail it out the 86 Bedford entrance because the cops were coming in through the courtyard door."86 that light"

"Everyone in Sales got 86'd."

New entry: in CSL (Cockney Slang Rhyme), 86 = nix = nothing, so it could be that all of the other variations have evolved from this.
