It's something I remember my father said to my mother from time to time... "You'd argue about two flies walking up the wall" Age is against me, and it's with some regret, I've forgotten an replies she might have made, but I'm intrigued by the comment. Was it unique to my father? I doubt it, somehow, And is it possible to have an arguement about two flies walking up a wall? As a betting man, it's probably quite ironic that my father chose this turn of phrase. He'd have been the one to argue the most profusely if it was a photo-finish, whether the fly he'd had had money on reached the top of the wall first. But enough of my father, was this a commom comment to make? And are there any other similar or interesting put downs you recall from the past?
