Why does "Cherry Picking" mean "Taking the pick of the Litter".
Hey, did I just explain a phrase with a another phrase. Anyway,
can it be that the cherry is the best part of whatever it's in.(ie:
icecream.) Therefore, when someone cherry picks something---they're
taking the best part leaving behind the less desired.
I wonder when a farmer "really" cherry picks (off the tree) he cherry picks the best ones for market.
