So I’ve always thought that the saying “it’s raining cats and dogs” was pretty strange because it doesn’t actually have a shred of literal sense.

But the French one-upped us again.  They say “il pleut comme vache qui pisse” which literally translates to “it’s raining like pissing cows”.  I can’t say I’ve ever seen a cow pee but this makes me very much want to avoid being underneath one when that happens.
