    Every which way but loose

    Every which way but loose
    Every which way you can

    These are Clint Eastwood films, but what do these titles mean?

    Clint had this orang-utan, which in one scene used police car as a toilet.
    After that Clint said to that monkey that

    "Sometimes I think that you are not too tightly wrapped" or something like that:

    Did I hear that correctly and if so, what's the meaning?
    Do you have any synonymous sayings or expressions in mind ????

    I'd say that's bizarre grammar or something.

    Not wrapped too tight, not with the progam, a sandwich short of a picnic, not with it ....
