Phrases like 'bring home the bacon' and 'take the bull by the horns' will go out of fashion, says a Vegan academic.
And as he is so obviously right, I offer him a few more.....
Beef up food?
Flog a dead horse
Mutton dressed as lamb
etc etc.
NB. The suggested alternative for 'taking the bull by the horns' was,,, Taking a rose by the thorns. Ah! Bless.
