Anybody know how certain phrases get started?
The one I had in mind is "Highway Robbery". What exactly is "highway robbery"? I mean what is its origin?
I was curious if anyone knew.
If you can think of other sayings like this [with seemingly meaningless scattershot words thrown together to form a phrase that we all use in our everyday lives] please let me see your list. And the origins of any such phrases, if you know. Maybe we can kill a few hours playing around with words in this "dog days" of summer post!!
Hey....How about that one...."Dog Days of Summer". Where did that one come from?
