I was just thinking about the term "puppy dog" and I wondered who started that? I mean a puppy is a dog so why say both? You wouldnt be like aww look its a child human! There's alot of other types of saying that bother me as well...here's a small list:
You couldn't see the broad side of a barn...If you can't see the broad side you probably cant see the barn period. Why not you can't see a barn...bc that would sound lame...but so does the other way because its ignorant and ignorance always sounds lame!

Blind as a bat. If you don't know why this bothers me and you're past 6th grade...go step in front of a bus. If your not in 6th grade yet, GET THE HELL AWAY FROM NUTANG BEFORE IT GETS INFESTED WITH YOUR MYSPACE COOTIES!!!

And my all time least favorite...fit as a fiddle? WTF?? A fiddle cannot be fit! At least not in the way that most people are referring to when they say that! Maybe if you are saying someone is in good condition to be played to make music with then it would be appropriate but I don't know anyone who that would apply too.

Lol yeah I've heard that before. I always think it's strange too. Here's the latest one to get me: "In a pickle". It's not even possible lol!

Fiddlefarting is definitely not just a Texas thing; in Australia my sister said it from as early as I can remember.

It would be very interesting to be in a real pickle.

"Fit as a fiddle, ready for love..." --Singin' in the Rain XD
Sung by Gene Kelly, I believe.

I have no idea, either.

Well, in a pickle, in a jam. Preserved food in general. :S

Mm, no? Jam as in traffic-jam could work. Just as in squishy? SQUISH. XD

you know what i don't get??

"stop, collaborate and listen.. ice is back with his brand new invention"
-- Vanilla Ice : Ice Ice Baby

You can't be "Back" with a brand new invention if you hadn't had one previous to that......

I always thought it was "Ice is back with his brand new edition" which is apparently wrong but made more sense lol
