: I often encounter this problem: I'd like to determine which are the most common "what"'s, eg: dog, parrot, 8-year-old aardvark, etc without ploughing through 34,800 hits on "sick as a"

Googlefight is your answer - don't forget to use inverted commas... results as follows:-

1. "sick as a dog" 19,500 hits
2. "sick as a parrot" 4,130 hits
3. "sick as a pig" 450 hits
