Overview:

Black Sheep and Lame Ducks: The Origins of Even More Phrases We Use Every Day : Why do people put their "skeletons in a closet," "have a hunch," "get the cold shoulder," "get dressed up to the nines," or "call a spade a spade?" These phrases are used every day, yet most people have little or no idea where most of them come from. In Black Sheep and Lame Ducks, Albert Jack takes readers on a journey through the curious - and often bizarre - origins of hundreds of their favorite idioms and expressions.
