: : Hello:
: : Long time since I've been here:
: : Do you know if this expression has any idiomatic meaning: "snatch the princess".
: : The context: Someone offers a couple help without charging them, and the husband says "she won't take our money, she won't steal our souls and she won't snatch the princess".
: : My very thanks to you all
: : Miri
: I've never heard "snatch the princess." I was thinking it might be a fairy tale reference. But, then again, could it be a reference to a computer game? I'm not up on that and my kids are still asleep. Does anyone know?
Mysterious to me, too. More context?
