Sayings that make no sense

Raining CATS & DOGS.

I get that it means its raining a lot, but at least most sayings have some basis/source. but NEVER has it rained cats and dogs. The best explanation I was able to find was that perhaps way back in the day it rained so much that it washed away poor cats and dogs. :/


  1. It's old, and it's got nothing to do with sayings.. it's lyrics.. about raining... so here you go, your post reminded me of this: http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v2069/217/62/518499840/n518499840_1159928_3855.jpg

  2. when it rains a lot people say "its raining cats and dogs".. therefore.. yes it is a saying :)
