My husband passed in 2012, but he would quote old adages from time to time. One specific one was when he was referring to someone who could not be trusted he would say, ” you know the devil trusted a turkey and he got a way.” Has anyone heard of this one or any variation of some sort?
I found http://articles.latimes.com/2002/aug/27/local/me-blackokies3/4 with Google.
This is the relevant dialog:“The devil trusted the turkey and the turkey put his eye out,” Mrs. Patterson deadpanned.
I cannot tell if it is a serial short story or what, but the by-line author might be available to locate and quiz about the article. Good Luck.
