Living With Stacy #146 – Clean as a Whistle
Hey there LWS comic fans and welcome to another new hilarious comic strip called “Clean as a Whistle.” Stacy snaps on some rubber gloves and goes to town on the dirty dishes. Before she can bask in her hard work, Ryan swoops in with a cereal bowl and klunks it into the sink without a second thought. Cue the heavy metal music. Haha.
Clean as a whistle is a weird idiom for me. You may have heard the expression before…it means, really, really clean. However, if you stop and think about it, being clean as a whistle would in reality, not that clean. Right? I mean, how clean can a whistle get? You got saliva, bacteria, airflow, no good way to clean it. So, I think it may have been a sarcastic response to a very clean situation. There could be more to it, maybe certain types of whistles needed to be pristine? Is that a military thing? A British thing? Who knows…
