: : As a child in Dublin my Grandmother used to say -Curiosity Killed the Cat but Information Makes you Fat.

: : With the help of this site I now know something about where the saying "Curiosity Killed the Cat" came from and I would like to find out if "Information Makes you Fat" is known to a greater audience than me and my late Grandmother.

: I've certainly heard it, but that's not of much use to you because I'm in Ireland too. The version with which I'm familiar is: 'Curiosity killed the cat, information made him fat . . . and he BURST!!'

: : Can anyone please help?

I've never heard it (I'm in the U.S.). But I like it!
