You know why it's "spill the beans?"

I didn’t know this at first.

But awhile ago spilling the ■■■■■■■ beans was a huge deal apparently.

It become associated with secrecy because they were ■■■■■■■ hiding those beans.

So while they were hiding them they sometimes spilled them and then everyone knew about it.

Isn’t that crazy ■■■■?

I never think this make no sense until now.

Like “kick the bucket”. i never know it but they were hanging themselves and they literally kicked out the bucket from underneath.

So I say “holy ■■■■!”

ahhh…in a famine… I would be upset if everyone was starving and then dam steve spills his hidden supply of beans in plain view… I imagine being accused of spilling the beans in such circumstance may illicit violence in response and a swift trial… I dont think the phrase is so serious now…

The one about kicking the bucket sounds very plausible. Thank you for enlightening us.
