Wackorism for 3/14/2013

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.

Thanks to Russell Brown for this week’s Wackorism!  Keep ’em coming!
