  1. Good one, LYndi. I heard one last night that was new for me. “Get the butter from a duck.” It means turn up the heat on someone–so that, like when you heat a duck, and the skin gets hot, all the fat liquifies. EEEW! 🙂 But it’s like a double doozy, since one saying is sort of tongue-in-cheek of another saying. LOL. Good one, though, right?
    Thanks for another fun tidbit.
