    So I felt like I should post this, it's exactly what it sounds like. Just to post a figure of speech and look for an answer. I wanted to post this because I often am wondering about the figure of speech "rolling over in my/your grave" I don't understand what the heck it means! Could somebody please explain it to me?

    Can we also post our (un)favorite mangled figures of speech? I'm thinking of horrors like "the proof is in the pudding," which I suppose might work if the pudding contained enough rum.
