Response to Happy as a clam - First post

I bet we all use the expression without really knowing its provenance. I've done some digging and this is what I found:-

"Anyone who has ever hunted for clams knows that they must be dug when the tide is low. They’re almost impossible to find in high tide, and it would be dangerous to venture too far out into deep water. People say these creatures are happy at high tide, therefore, because they're in no danger, at least from humans, of being made into a meal."

Paneristi - more than just watches. Education too.
