Phrase origin

Posted by Caroline on October 04, 2004

I am working on a language journal for college and found myself wondering where the phrase, "stuck out like a sore thumb" came from. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. I haven't been able to find it on any website with phrase origings. Thanks!
