‘A fish out of water’. ‘A penny for your thoughts’. ‘A wolf in sheep’s clothing’. These are just some of the common sayings and catchphrases we bet you’ve heard dropped into conversations in your time.
Some have been around for centuries and have rather interesting stories behind them. Did you know, for instance, that the saying ‘dead as a dodo’ first became popular after the publication of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1865, because the children’s story includes a dodo character? And that the phrase ‘the pot calling the kettle black’ was first coined all the way back in the 17th century, when several writers included similar wordplays on pots and kettles to talk about hypocrisy in their plays, poems and books?
