: AS BROKE AS PIECRUST - Poor, without money. My husband heard this on a National Public Radio program (October 2002) about rhythm and blues musicians in the 1940s in Los Angeles. "We were as broke as piecrust." Piecrust is very delicate and crumbles easily.
: I'm adding
this to my collection:
: Too broke to spend the night.
: Too poor to pay attention.
It's the best of the three. So visual.
