: : You can put a tuxedo on a pig but it's still going to look for a mudhole. From a discussion forum for University of Kentucky Wildcat fans. January 2005.

: Never heard that one, but I like it. It reminds me of a similar phrase: You can take the girl out of the docks, but you can't take the docks out of the girl.

: DFG

Or, as they say around here, "You can take the boy out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the boy."
