: I love this website, but is it possible that you have some MISSING phrases? Just a couple you might want to add or research:

: "One-eyed Jack": Slang for penis...or a the Jack with one eye in a deck of cards whereby a poker game is played they are wild.

: "Salad days":Similar to Halcyon days? Grand old times of happiness?

Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra...Cleopatra is regretting her youthful dalliances with Julius Caesar: "My salad days, When I was green in judgment."
