: : : "you two go together like milk and water"...what is meant by this ?

: : It means those two don't go together. Try mixing milk and water and you'll see for yourself.

: Brian, it's oil and water that don't mix. Milk and water mix just fine - milk is mostly water. (^_^) I've never heard the expression as posted.

OK so technically milk and water "mix". I guess my advice to the original poster should have been "try tasting milk and water mixed together".

I've never heard the expression, either, but it sure doesn't sound like a compliment to the happy couple.
