GUEST,Chicken Charlie Origins: 'Skin the Cat' and other family sayings (113* d) RE: Origins: 'Skin the Cat' and other family sayings 03 Apr 08


When someone he didn't admire got something right, my grandfather would say, "Even a blind sow can stumble across an acorn once in a while."

And his version of recommending that a spade be called a spade was, "If a cat had kittens in the oven, would you call them biscuits?"

The blind sow I have heard elsewhere; the kittens thing I have not.
