The history behind popular sayings....

so many, we've heard 'em. Rub a dub dub, three men in a tub. When you sneeze, you taste death. And so on. Many have real medical reasons behind them. How about numbers one and two for peeing and pooping, respectively? Have often wondered about these, until, that is, I became a dog owner many years ago. My dogs all kept business things in proper order. Aa-VKH.
