: : : : I have recently heard this quote used. I understand it to mean that there are a lot of holes and has a sexual connotation but had never heard it before. Does anyone know the derivation? TIA.
: : : I get no hits on that phrase
: : : Tho for what it's worth, "hotter than a June bride" is pretty common, esp "in a feather bed"--DH
: : Definitely not one of the most charming phrases we've seen. You're right RJ about the sexual connotation, can't imagine what else there is to add.
: Mixed metaphor -- the official version is 'more holes than a Fren*h w*ore' Not a very PC thing to be talking about here, and I suggest that Gary zap this trhead immediately.
I'm the first in line to zap threads that stray from the mission, degenerate into ad hominem dreariness, or waste brain cells. But ... as vulgar and inelegant as this discussion is, your explanation was enlightening, about a phrase I had never heard before, and resolved the question. Thanks. We do get, from time to time, phrases that offend. But that seems like part of the purpose of this site. De gustibus...
