: 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.
: thx.

It's a stuck pig--stuck with a slaughtering knife, I believe. "Bleeding like a stuck pig" is a traditional phrase.
