Origins of Expressions: A PIG’S EAR – This phrase derives from the old proverb ‘you can’t make a silk purse out os a sow’s ear’, which dates from the sixteenth century. In other words, no matter how skilled you are, if the material you’re working with is no good, you won’t be able to do very much with it. So if you make a pig’s ear of a job or task then you’ve done it badly.
