Latest post of the previous page:You know how you hear a new word or phrase for the first time, learn its meaning, then it seems you're hearing it all the time?
I give you: 'to rip someone a new one'.
'He ripped me a new one when he found out', 'I'm gonna rip her a new one over this'.
Whenever I hear it I feel like this
Is this the most ridiculous phrase in history? And is it, as I suspect, a recent arrival or have I just been lucky up to now?
