F is for Frog’s Hair
If you realize that you’ve never noticed hair on a frog before, that’s because it’s so very fine it can’t be seen.
Down South, we use this as a common measure of an extreme level of “fineness.”
“Fine as Frog’s Hair!”
This can be further expounded (for things of an amazing and exemplary fineness):
“Fine as Frog’s Hair, split 3 ways!”
(Now that’s pretty fine.)
My daddy, a very positive and cheerful guy, takes it one step further.
“Hey Jim, how y’all been?”
“I been fine as Frog’s Hair, split 3 ways and sandpapered down the middle!”
“What do the old folks say,
She’s finer than frog hair split four ways” – Shooter Jennings, “The Deed and the Dollar.”
