Ever notice there’s a lot of cliches about “sleeping” and “bed” and “dogs”?

I learned a lot from writing up this comic. One, I learned the difference between idioms and cliches…. and I also learned the origin of “let sleeping dogs lie”…. which is sometimes called a PROVERB too. In essence, if it may bite, may as well lay low and let it go.

Not only that, but we now know what was probably assumed anyway: Fred is a bed-hog.
