Ir ye full ?

I herd an oul yin fae mae mither tha nicht













Full as a fitch


The evidence would suggest that this oul sayin comes from the common vetch 'fitch' plant (vicia sativa) which was used as fodder for cattle and horses.

Alternatives
full as a po: full as an egg and full as the eye o a pick
