    a mass of jelly

    Hi

    Does anyone know what "a mass of jelly" mean in the sentence below?
    "I hit my knee against the coffee table and it gave like a mass of jelly, with an intense pain."

    I really have no clue at all.
    Help me, please. Thank you so much.

    Re: a mass of jelly

    That's an odd sentence. Where did you find it?

    Knees are bony; they don't turn into jelly when hurt.
