August 26, 2011Where did "Piss Poor" come from?
They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot
And then once a day it was taken and sold to the tannery...
.if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor".
But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn`t even afford to buy a pot...
They "didn`t have a pot to piss in" and were the lowest of the low.
The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature
Isn`t just how you like it, think about how things used to be.
