Post by Sam Plusnet Pigs with wings? Incidentally, in my childhood, the phrase used was "If pigs could fly, we'd have to shoot for sausages." Was this commonly known & used, or a peculiarity of my family?
Never heard it.
"If wishes were horses, beggars would ride" is the one I know...
If ifs and ands were pots and pans, there'd be no work for tinkers' hands.
