The New Orleans Saints should be very grateful for the recent gifts they have been presented with in the course of their schedule so far this season.
Have you ever heard the expression “don’t look a gift horse in the mouth” and wondered what it really meant? It actually falls into the category of a phrase that qualifies as an Olde Englishe proverb, or a ‘short and expressive saying, in common use, which is recognized as conveying some accepted truth or useful advice’. As horses age their teeth start to project further forward each year so that their age can be estimated by assessing how prominent the teeth are. The original phrase, as it first appears in print in 1546 in John Heywood’s A dialogue conteinyng the nomber in effect of all the prouerbes in the Englishe tongue, is presented as “No man ought to looke a geuen hors in the mouth.” Don’t be ungrateful when you receive a gift is the essential meaning of the phrase in the modern sense.
