Stink!

One of Gia's favorite expressions when she encounters a shitty situation is "that stinks on ice!"  She uses it all the time.  When the Yankees lose on a questionable play in the field...it stinks on ice!  You know?

But what the hell does that really mean?

I read somewhere that the phrase "on ice" can mean "big time" or "to the extreme", so I guess that kinda makes sense.  "That stinks big time!"  OK.

We, however, decided that it means that if something stinks even though you have it on ice, then it must really fucking stink!  Like even the preservative qualities of frozen water can't keep the stench at bay.

Imagine the day's catch from an afternoon of fishing. You put it on ice but it still stinks to high heaven. THAT'S what I'm talking about?

Wait..."stinks to high heaven?"

What the fuck does THAT mean?

 "Yo! That stinks on ice! Word to your mutha!"

Stinks to high heaven is a phrase that originated from German "Hough Haven" meaning "Big Haven". This was in reference to a city on the edge of the Rhine River that was quite down wind from the local paper mills. Even though it was some distance away when it was really windy they could still smell the odor of paper being made. The original phrase was "It's so windy today it stinks to Hough Haven". The phrase was brought over to America with the German Russian immigrants around 1900.
