Student or Learner
I recently came across an interesting expression: Wouldn't that put a twist in your toga? From the context it was used, I assume it means "wouldn't that get you mad?" I wonder the phrase has anything to with knickers in a twist. Thanks in advance!
It always used to be "knickers in a knot" where I come from. Apparently the 'kn' alliteration has been sacrificed for consonance of 'knick, twist'.
Thanks always for your kind help, guys. I just wonder why English-speaking people started to relate clothing (especially those covering your private parts) to getting angry. However hard I try, I can't find anything even-remotely close to this in my own language. BTW, if you happen to know some common expressions related to this, please be kind to post them.
Thanks again, Raymott. I was left in stitches for a while after reading Bart's trademark expression. Good day to you.
