Do you know what an idiom is? It's a phrase or expression that has a figurative meaning that is different from its literal meaning. We've all heard idioms like: when pigs fly...once in a blue moon...raining cats and dogs...when hell freezes over...kick the bucket, etc.

The other day I was talking to a friend about the possibility of the Vikings winning the Super Bowl in the next year or two and my buddy used a phrase I had never heard before. He said "Yeah, that will happen when squirrels waterski". I told him that there are squirrels that waterski and I had video proof (see above).

Maybe his misguided attempt at an idiom is all it will take for the purple to finally take home the Lombardi trophy. I'd sure like to see that happen before I 'kick the bucket'.
