Let's start a thread with weird and wonderful sayings. Why do we say them? Where did they come from?
I will start us off -
The saying is: "Caught red-handed"
Meaning: To be caught doing something bad.
Origin: This phrase comes from a law that stated that if you butchered an animal that didn't belong to you, you had to be caught with the animal's blood on your hands to be prosecuted.
