2 obscure US sayings

Posted by Edward Stansell on August 25, 2002

There are two US sayings, probably southern, which I'm at a loss as to their origin. Something overly tight is said to be " tighter than Dick's hatband". The other saying for something that is no longer in fashion or no longer believed, etc., is said to have "gone the way of fat Sam" Your guess is as good as mine on these.
