Of rats, cats and employers
Well, I promised recently that I had a great Yorkism to share, and I haven’t forgotten.
This one was shared by deskmate Cathy during a recent editorial meeting. She was talking about WellSpan’s role as York County’s biggest employer, and she came out with this gem:
“Yeah, you can’t swing a dead rat in York County without hitting a WellSpan employee!”
Wow! That was new to me totally, then someone mentioned that they thought the phrase was supposed to be “dead cat,” which is NOT any better.
Am I the only one who’d never heard of swinging dead things?
