: "Even a blind squirrel eventually finds a nut." We use it to tease each other when we do something correctly, but we are implying that its the first thing the other guy has done right. where does this phrase come from and have we changed it because I've also heard "Even a blind pig eventually finds a nut."

The way I've heard it: Even a blind hog finds an acorn ever once in a while.
