What's your favorite expression, what does it mean and where does it originate from?


It's cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey. Naval expression. The brass monkey held cannon balls. When it was so cold, the differential expansion (or contraction) between steel and brass caused the steel balls to shrink and fall through the hole of the brass monkey.
