GUEST,Sol Derbyshire sayings origin - Meg's arse (20) RE: Derbyshire sayings origin - Meg's arse 26 Aug 18


From a Google search I see that one version is "the ins and outs of a cow's arse" (as the cow's digestive system is very complicated). Can I suggest that Meg was a Derbyshire farmer's cow and the expression caught on.

Re. colloquial expressions, I used to know a chap from Manchester who would say "It's black over Bob's mothers" whenever there were dark clouds in the distance. I often wondered who Bob was.
