Re: OFF-TOPIC: resource for sayings
One of my dept. heads is giving a speech soon, and he
wants me to find the origin of the following:
"Straight from the horse's mouth"
"As a rule of thumb"
Anyone have a good resource on the Net for the origin
of some of these sayings?
http://www.straightdope.com/columns/000512.html explains the rule of thumb. Can't find the horse's mouth though.
