    A sauce makes something more interesting to eat, or hides the taste of something unpleasant. The most effective thing that does this is being hungry; if you're really hungry, you'll eat anything. Hence 'Hunger is the best sauce'.

    Give a dog a bad name and hang him Go here Brewer, E. Cobham. Dictionary of Phrase & Fable. Dog., and scroll down to (8) DOG in proverbs, fables, and proverbial phrases. In short, the best way to ruin someone is to question their reputation.
