: where did that phrase come from(not the dirty version)

I looked around using Google and found just a little information. A mollusk called the bearded clam lives in the Mediterranean Sea and was also listed among Korean exports. I didn't find a picture of it. I'm guessing that part of its body forms a fringe that might protrude from its shell. Any shellfish experts here?
