In Reply to: "Swinging the leg" Posted by Elaine Watkins on July 06, 2006
: I was told once that the phrase "swinging the leg" was from nautical origin but was to do with the sick seamen having to swing a leg out of the bunk if they were alive but still ill? not the lead on a line origin as posted on your forum.
That sounds sooooo Monty Python. "I'm not dead yet!"
