Many of the old rural/farm expressions are unknown to younger (urban) people
today or they misuse them. I frequently hear "it's a hard road to hoe." or
"It's a question of whose oxen (ox) is gored." can't think of any more now,
but they turn up all the time, especially here in NYC where many people have
never been to a farm.
