In Reply to: Nail your butt to the wall???? posted by Carrie on December 02, 2004
: Help! I understand it's meaning....but where did it derive? I have also heard "nail your hide to the wall" but after reseaching....I find nothing. The closest I came was "nailing your colors to the Mast" but I don't think its the same. Thanks!!!
Guess here. People would nail the hides of animals to a wall so the hides wouldn't shrink.
