Did you know…?

…that ‘bite the hand that feeds you’ has been used since at least the early 1700s. It originally referred to a foolish ungrateful dog that actually bit the hand of the owner who was feeding it.
Today the expression has been extended to include people who turn against anyone who helps them; and it no longer has anything to do with real food or actually biting a hand.
