Wavestar Folklore: 'Fingernail Moon' metaphor (31) RE: Lyr Req: Origin of 'Fingernail Moon' Metaphor 12 Feb 01

Gervase, I suspect it's redolent of apes because of gibbons, which are a type of ape or monkey (I'm almost positive.) I can check out the etymology of gibous for you - Once again, I'll get back to you :)


PS LTS, my nails can't fly, I cup my hands around my toes. It's getting the clippings to let go of the clipper that's a problem.
