Some day, I will list all of the odd catch phrases we have around here and from whence they come. You won’t understand much of it (neither do I, frankly), but at least I’ll satisfy my obsessive need to list everything.

I was reminded of it while watching this compilation of Harryhausen creatures Maven pointed me at.
