: Where does this old saying come from...Any ideas?

: When pigs fly

No idea towards when it was originated, but it doesn't "come from" anything, it's just a way of saying never. Pigs will never fly. Simple as that. Although I'll bet Bruce Kahl will jump in and prove me completely wrong with some publication excerpt!
