: : Has anyone ever heard the popular Scottish saying "broken biscuits to a grizzly bear" meaning that something is no problem?

: I think it's just lovely that there's a popular saying in Scotland (!) about grizzly bears. No, I've never heard it. SS

Google has a few hits for "broken biscuits to me", but not to any kind of bear. In fact, it can't even find "broken biscuits" and "grizzly bear" on the same page - 0 hits.

"Broken biscuits" seems to be used quite a bit, does it imply anything other than actual crushed cookies?
