sorry, never heard anything close to it.  What does it mean?  Worry, not
though, I use way too many uncommon or completely unknwon idioms and get
strange looks quite often (or perhaps that's because I have a tendency to
do everything, including homework and walking down the street, with a novel
in my hand.)  I once said that someone was not the sharpest pin in a hat,
and had the person to whom I was talking  end the conversation abruptly and
walk away.
