yes, it says
To coin a turn of phrase. Friday, November 19, 1999
As you know, Pigdump never stops digging, probing, delving into the true meaning of all things. And along the way, we sometimes stumble onto penultimate things. What does that mean? Well take, for instance E=mc2. What was on Einstein's chalkboard before he discovered that truth? Something we'll never know and never need to know, you see. Ergo, a penultimate truth. Ah, now you get it!

In a recent Pigdump study of words and phrases we got lucky! A list of penultimate clichés. Turns of phrases that were almost the real thing but... well, you'll see:

  • Let sleeping bags lie.
  • Go west young, man.
  • Don't lick a gift horse in the mouth.
  • To go where no man has gone before, boldly.
  • You say eggplant and I say aubergine.
  • It's not over 'til the fat lady falls on her ass.
  • You can't judge a book by its author.
  • Wake up and smell the cat food.
  • You can't teach a dead dog new tricks.
