Spilling the Beans on the Cat's Pajamas

#UL2472 $14.95 $8.97

This entertaining and illuminative little compendium offers a handy A to Z of "popular expressions - what they mean and how we got them." From the viscerally discomforting notion of having "ants in one's pants" (popularized by a U. S. army general overseeing the National Recovery Administration), to the optimistic adage that "every cloud has a silver lining" (thought to have poetically originated in Milton's Comus from 1634), to the abruptly straightforward command to "zip it!"...the terms expounded upon in these pages all have an interesting tale to tell.
