內容簡介

Don't be down in the dumps if you can't cut the mustard when asked the definition of certain phrases--this down-to-earth guide is just the ticket. This collection contains some fascinating and remarkable stories about our best-loved and most colorful phrases and shows the huge range of sources from which they originate. From advertising to the Ancient Greeks, from the military to meteorology, Kicking the Bucket at the Drop of a Hat takes us on a wonderful journey through our language's history. With more phrases than you can shake a stick at, this collection will bring home the bacon for any Tom, Dick, or Harry with a love of language.
