Hi ... qwerty ...
Maybe the all got thrown out with the daily Braingle bathwater ????


No .... (we must be serious, here) ... although you and I might be familiar with the expression there are LOTS of people who grew up in families, or regions, or parts of the world who never used that expression.



Simply because these are often called "common phrases" does not mean they are "common" to us all or that we should be critical of those who haven't heard them.

There was a recent rebus based on "dragged through a hedge backwards" that I reacted to for the wrong reasons. Although I was familiar with the phrase, having seen it several places in the literature over the past years, I was negative in that I felt it was a colloquial that was LOCALIZED too much (not that well-known to us USA Yankee jerks). Obviously the editors differed with me (not the first time). I should have taken my own advice and backed off.


Thank you for the visit and the comment.
