Some language historians point to a newly discovered cave painting that depicts a large bear shitting in the woods. But was the intent simply to convey a cavemans literal fascination with the great beasts stool or was there a more figurative meaning- the debate rages on. Anyway, what we do know is that bored, unemployed English majors often write books regarding idioms meanings and origins. Since those books already exist, and most are really quite boring, we decided to take things a step further by offering an alternative story behind some of our favorite idioms. Weve also included some slightly-better-than-stick-figure illustrations to assist those readers intimidated by even minimal amounts of text. Anyhoo, are we confident that youll like the book? Does a bear shit in the woods?
