This week’s topic for Illustration Friday is “puzzled.” Sometimes I puzzle over the origins and meanings of popular clichés, like the subject of this piece: “pull the wool over somebody’s eyes.” It means “to deceive someone,” but I tend to picture things literally.

If you enjoy clichés, too, you should visit this website which pulls ten at random. During my research, I stumbled across “noisier than two skeletons making love on a tin roof.” You better believe I’ll introduce that into this week’s conversations.

What’s your favorite cliché?
