Wackorism: A bird in the hand is worth … more with a little rosemary and garlic butter.
Aphorism: A bird in the hand is worth … two in the bush.
Origin: This proverb refers back to mediaeval falconry where a bird in the hand (the falcon) was a valuable asset and certainly worth more than two in the bush (the prey).
Meaning: It’s better to have a lesser but certain advantage than the possibility of a greater one that may come to nothing.
