About the Book

By listening to the expressions of others, Linda Cutler has come to realize that there is thankfully more humor in life than not, especially when it comes to well-known quips. In a collection of witticisms, Linda humorously dissects why we repeat sayings like “he drinks like a fish” and “happy as a clam” without questioning whether anyone has ever measured fish consumption for comparison and whether it is even possible to tell if a clam is happy or sad. While examining other amusing sayings such as “sweating like a pig,” “barking up the wrong tree,” and “striking while the iron is hot,” Cutler offers witty reflections and clever wisdom that encourages others to stop and think about what they are saying on a daily basis and what each phrase really means. Happy as a Clam is a collection of quips that make us all scratch our heads while wondering how we can sow wild oats, why we would ever want to spill our guts, and why there are vegetables like suffering succotash.
