What is the origin of the saying: “A gargoyle sallied, a banshee’s cry”?
Always Wondered in Bristol
Worry less about its origins if you’ve actually heard this saying. The day a man uses this within your earshot, leave immediately. Take nothing, communicate with no-one. Just run and don’t stop.
Incidentally, it’s from Celtic story about a Gathering of the Fae. There was a misunderstanding with some mead, and it all went uphill from there.
