TIL "bated" breath

Recommended Posts

Yes, and actually I always get a pretty funny mental image when I see "baited breath" of someone with a worm dangling in their mouth...

I always think of the Get Fuzzy cartoon where the owner tells Bucky to go chew on the toilet brush because he has "chum breath". I think that is what baited breath would smell like.
