Idiomsyncracies

I learned a new phrase today.

"The Devil's beating his wife with a frying pan."

This is apparently a Southernism for "Look! The sun is shining and it's raining at the same time!"

There's a Forty-Fives song that makes a hell of a lot more sense to me now.

I was raised by Midwesterners, remember? I just live here; I'm not precisely from here.
