I was thinking last night with my mates after I said. "I know it like the back of my hand" ...what?! I dont know about you guys, but I dont know the back of my hand too well. Unless it's a masturbation joke, in which case it's in very poor taste for us sophisticated lot. "I wouldn't go near her, she's like the village bicycle" What IS this bicycle they speak of? I live in a village, and there isn't a shared bicycle we use to get the paper from the shops or something. Maybe it's from the old times? Why would you compare a whore to a bike anyway?! "A feather in one's cap" ...I like achievements, but a feather as a reward - piss off! Can you guys think of any popular phrases that make no sense whatsoever!? and maybe we should make our own up! But let's not "beat around the bush".
