Re: Origin Of The Idioms
To look like something the cat dragged in = something that a cat has caught and has dragged home will be mangled and mutilated.
As much use as a chocolate fireguard = a fireguard is a protective mesh put in front of an open burning fire. One made of chocolate would melt. So it would not be of much use.
