Various phrases

Posted by Gary Martin on January 14, 2010 at 11:49

The Readers' Digest have asked me if I know the origin of these phrases:

"He couldn't stop a pig in an entry" (said of a bow-legged man)
"Stop hanging the bag out" (stop messing around)
"It won't turn into a pig's foot" (said to a child to reassure a slightly injured child)

Right off the top, I don't. Anyone familiar with them?
