I miss Judge Joe Brown ... (one of several Judge Shows no longer airing )
A southern gentleman Judge ..
Genteel and classy with a slight drawl which I find ever so sexy .. ...
Slow to anger but when he did lose his temper >>>
he was magnificent as he was still controlled but you could feel it
Called his bailiff Miss Holly which I find utterly charming
There were always a wide variety of lawsuits
and at times ... in addition to being enlightening ... as funny as hell
For the last week or so keep thinking of him and some of his more memorable shows
And the phrase >>> y'all don't fatten a frog for another man's snake keeps rolling around in my mind ..
just love folksie sayings
conjures up a way of life as well .. laid back and laconic
and often quite tongue in cheek ... to my ears anyway
rather than misspeak about the actual case ..
here is the best explanation for the saying that I could find ..
What it really means is:
Example: A pretty girl in a bar(frog) who has a boyfriend at home (snake)
and there's a guy at the bar buying her drink after drink (fattening)
in hopes of taking her home with him, but when the bar closes she goes home to her man.
Hence: Fattening the frog for the snake.
