Stop and think

People use terms all of the time, that really make some stop dead in their tracks to think. Like the term....... "Tickled pink" Is it me or does that just sound wrong?

Who came up with terms such as these? And what were they truly thinking?

I know people use the term "Tickled pink" to express extreme happiness, but you'd be happy too if somebody tickled you pink! Right?

That definitely sounds like something a lot of people would be happy about! LOL!

I wonder if maybe the person who started that phrase meant exactly that, knowing most people wouldn't pick up on it and would just use it themselves giving those who knew a chuckle every time! Hehehehehehe
