: My co-workers and I were pondering why someone would use the
phrase "that's the cat's ass" in response for something good. Last
time I checked a cat's a s s wasn't a very pleasant thing. So why
do we use it that way and where does this saying come from?
: Can anyone help?
Or the dog's bollocks? I like the inventive alternative, 'the mutt's nuts', athough why either is used to signify quality is beyond me.
