Hi,

Actualy the full expression is:

"A snake in the grass
Is an asp in the grass
But a grasp in the ass
Is a goose."

Giving someone a 'goose' or 'goosing' someone, is the term used for a 'pinch' or grasp/grabbing of the ass.

"WHY is a grasp on the ass a goose?" to which I still have no valid answer :) thanks for the effort, [email protected]

Hi again, and you're most welcome.

Knowing the double meaning of 'a goose' should be the answer, but since it's not the answer you're seeking, I will opt out and leave your question open for other experts to answer.

I wish you much good luck!
