Idioms and Phrases

Well ain't this bag of tricks and snippits of howdy doodies the cat's pajamas?

This is a budding collection of idioms and phrases that I've been collecting with some work mates (notably Paul Evans). We generally look up a phrase when it comes up in discussion, trying to understand the origin and true meaning.

The phrases pages should include the country of origin, year of first use, and possibly who coined it.

  • Mad hatter
  • birds of a feather stick together
  • Hang loose
  • Daily grind, back to the grindstone
