Odd Sayings..

I was on the phone with a very old contact in Holland this morning, and he used the phrase:

    Lets milk the cow whilst its still there

to indicate that we should try and do a deal with someone whilst he's still in a position to help - fully knowing that the contact will move on.

Which reminded me of another dutch phrase:

    Dont pull dead cows out of the canal

Which basically means "dont resurrect old issues just for the sake of argument". Handy that one, in a marriage situation...

Do you have any other similar wierd sayings ?
