: : 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.


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."
