From a dog you don't make salami.
I ran across that saying in a book (on management, of all things) and it caught my eye immediately. I'm thinking it's going to come in really handy in a myriad of situations.
But, here's the odd thing; it was credited as being an old Hungarian proverb. Hungarian? Since when is salami Hungarian? Surely this was a misprint.
But no, thanks to the WorldWideWeb and a trusty search engine, I discovered that there really is such a thing as Hungarian salami.
