Subject: RE: Origins: 'Skin the Cat' and other family sayings
"Running around like a fart in a colander - not knowing which hole to pop out of first" was a saying in my family.
Colyn.


I suppose that means confused. Our saying was a little more acceptable to most people: "Running around like a chicken with its head cut off" meaning frantically confused, panicking.
