Thursday Thirteen #5: Animal Cliches

1. It's better to find a whole worm in your apple than half a worm--ain't that the truth!

My dogs are barking--after a long day of shopping that's for sure!

Looking like the cat who swallowed the canary--do cats actually do that?!

4. N
ervous as a long tailed cat in a living room full of rockers--I don't think they mean Mick
Jagger types...or do they?

In a pig's eye--not sure where this one comes from...anyone know?

6. G
ot a frog in your throat?--sore throats are scratchy and painful, but a frog?!

7. A
bird in the hand is worth two in the bush--yes, but who wants a bird in the hand?

Naked as a jaybird--but aren't all birds naked? Why single out the poor jaybird?!

Knee-high to a grasshopper--just how short is that?

The bee's knees--an old one, but how did this become an expression of coolness?

11. Let's talk turkey--unless it's Thanksgiving, I'm not interested!

12. C
lean as a hound's tooth--and just how clean is that?

A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle--I've always loved this one!

Happy TT everyone!

I've often wondered where Bee's Knees came from.
