It’s raining cats and dogs, you’ve hit the nail on the head, the pot calling the kettle black. . . These are just some of the common catchphrases and expressions used in everyday conversation.
Many have some rather strange origins. For instance, rumour has it the phrase ‘let the cat out of the bag’ was first coined hundreds of years ago, when merchants were often found trying to make money selling piglets. The piglets would be put in bags for buyers to take home, so some of the pluckier sellers would secretly fill the bags with stray cats. The unknowing buyer would then arrive home and, instead of finding a piglet, would let the cat out of bag!
