Have you ever thought about sayings….

Sometimes I tend to have really random thoughts. Not like, why is the grass green, or what is the meaning of life, that’s far too deep to be honest with you!! So, I thought about the thoughts that I think about the most….confused?! You will be hahaha I just sometimes wonder where on Earth sayings come from, or just why on Earth we say such stupid things anyway. If anyone has any answers to these then please do let me know, I’m always happy to learn random bits of information, I’m like a mine full of crappy knowledge usually!!



  • Losing out hand over fist – huh?
  • I was up at Sparrows Cough – do sparrows actually cough?
  • It’s all gravy – as oppose to what, jam??
  • It’s raining cats and dogs – no it’s not, it always has been and always will be, WATER
  • What’s on the gogglebox – is this an English/Northern thing??
  • I’ve got eyes in the back of my head – weird
  • Grass is never greener on the other side – of what??
  • You can’t polish a turd – just gross!!
  • You can take a girl out of the city but not the city out of the girl
  • An apple a day keeps the doctor away – wanna bet!!
  • Every dog has its day – to doooooo?
  • You’re as keen as mustard you – I just don’t get it.


The list could really go on but, you get the general idea. I would just like to know who the hell creates these things?! Any why, really, why would you even want to polish a turd. Vile.


I guess sayings make for an pleasant world but (you see, again, why would it make for a pleasant world, I’m sure David Cameron isn’t thinking, if only I could think of some sayings dammit then I know we could have world peace).


I’m beginning to rant now. It has been a long day, I’m gonna get my ass to bed before I start driving myself crazy! Until tomorrow 🙂
