Date: Tue, 25 Oct 1994 18:00:30 EDT From: LISA A BRAMEL Subject: Re: offending idioms I have read over most of the messages referring to idioms, many exploring more serious ones, so i'd like to change to a lighter note. What about 'beat you like a red-headed step child' or 'red on a head like a peter on a poodle.' There are many others, besides the two I have mentioned but which I have drawn a mental blank on.
