The idioms vegans and animal activists want us to stop using

Vegans want society to do away with phrases such as “bringing home the bacon” and “kill two birds with one stone”.

Animal rights charity PETA is pushing for harm-free alternatives such as “bringing home the bagels” and “feeding two birds with one scone”.

This prompted Ross and John and callers to make a list of all their favourite animal-related phrases, such as:

  • Hold your horses
  • Flogging a dead horse
  • Getting the monkey off your back
  • Like a red rag to a bull
  • Let the cat out of the bag
