: Okay, now I need to know if anyone has heard of the phrase "skimming skim milk". I've never heard it used as a phrase except once. And was wondering if it was a phrase, and if so, what is its meaning?
I've never heard it, but the meaning is obvious, surely. Anyone who would skim skim milk to try and get cream off it must be very stingy indeed.
