Spilling the Beans on the Cat's Pyjamas : Popular Expressions - What They Mean And Where We Got Them
You wouldn't be barking mad if, when asked the definition of certain phrases, the cat got your tongue. This book saves the day by spilling the beans on the origins of such linguistic quirks. A light-hearted book examining the many interesting - but rather incomprehensible - phrases that enhance the English language. Explores how terms such as 'the bee's knees', 'as keen as mustard', and countless others originated, and describes exactly what these nonsensical phrases mean.
