Bonus Trivia

Ever wonder why we talk about making money “hand over fist?”

Picture the hands of a fisherman as he hauls in a net full of fish. One fist first holds the rope while the other hand moves over it to get a  new grip further down. Then that fist holds the rope while the first hand moves over it to get a new grip – and so on “hand over fist.” Now picture the net full of money, and you can see how the expression came about.
