©What Does That Mean?

 

A Far Cry:   Iím at a complete loss on this one.

 

Tit for Tat:   I donít know what a tat is, but it better be really good if Iím trading a tit for it.

 

Smitherenes:          A place to be blown to?

 

Shebang:††† All I know about this is it only works if thereís a whole one.

 

Holy moly:   I guess itís like a holy cow, except I know what a cow is.

 

Chinamanís chance in hell: Not only is that racist, but what the hell is that supposed to mean?

 

Nobody wants to be a so and so. Why?

 

Cockamamie: Again, Iíve got nothing. I know the context in whence it is used. But what does the word really mean? Why did it come into existence as a real word? I guess itís kind of like the word, piddling.

 

Good grief: I guess grief is good because youíre getting it out of your system, but people use it as an expletive. When you do that what does it mean?

 

What is a-muck? All I know is you donít want to run one.

Fit as a fiddle: Are fiddles really fit?

 

Check back as I continue to ask, ďWhat does that mean?Ē
