as awkward as a cow on roller skates

November 21, 2007


I stumbled upon this term in a couple of places online. I’ve never actually heard anyone utter (or udder) this particular phrase, but by golly if it’s on the internet it must be true, right? Well, regardless of it’s validity, this alleged idiom tickled me, and I immediately conjured up an image.

Granted, the little bovine beauty above does not appear to be awkward at all. Instead, she seems to be gliding right along, hauling…well…er…beef, if you will.

    I asked my friend Google about idioms and he came up with a load of useful resource sites that you might find useful!

    The best is probably the Wikipedia page for Idioms which has a load more links at the end of the page.

  7. I love it. Her smug look says she’s happy to defy the cliché and be anything but awkward on her skates. And the udder trailing behind is perfect.
