Ever wonder how “three sheets to the wind” came to mean inebriated? Why we gauge distance “as the crow flies” and say we’ve “put our foot in our mouth” after a verbal blunder? In Two Shakes of a Lamb’s Tail lets the cat out of the bag, so to speak, with 48 intriguing explorations of popular sayings. The front of each card in this deck gives a definition (e.g., “Ill, indisposed”) and a hint (“Meteorology is involved”); it’s up to you to guess the saying. The answer is given on the back, with an explanation of the saying’s origins. Curl up with this deck when it’s raining cats and dogs, or pull out all the stops and enjoy it as a lively multiplayer game—either way, you’ll be entertained till the cows come home.
