In Reply to: Is it a stuck or stuffed pig? posted by Missy on October 13, 2002
: with regards to bleeding, my grand mother has always said that some one or something
had "bled like a stuffed pig". To me this does not make much sense as I would
think it might be a stuck pig that would bleed more than a stuffed pig. Any suggestions
or sites for where to find the answer would be much appreciated.
It's a stuck pig--stuck with a slaughtering knife, I believe. "Bleeding like a stuck pig" is a traditional phrase.
