I have never heard the term "bread and circuses," and I don't know from where I managed to pull "Sturm & Drang." I have no idea what that is, and somehow I managed to pull it from the recessed of my mind. I'm almost certain I intuited it from the Drangsturm Academy in Harry Potter.

It's actually one of the most important concepts in politics. The people will tend to be civil so long as they have bread (something to eat) and circuses (something to distract them from the political corruption of their leaders). Lose either of those and they tend to overthrow their government.

I've never understood the expression 'slings and arrows;' it seems to be a serious type mismatch. Bows and arrows, or slings and stones, no problem, they go together. Bows and slings or stones and arrows also makes sense, they're either the launcher or the projectile. But slings and arrows makes about as much sense as bows and stones! Curse you Shakespeare!!

Just took this quiz again, and all I could think of for Haw was Gee. I once drove a mule team when I was a girl, and those were the commands for them to go right or left. (Not that they paid any attention to them, being mules.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gee_and_haw

Yes, I'm aware, the point was that they don't seem like a good match even though it's a well known saying, just as plattitude pointed out that slings and arrows don't really make sense together even though I'm sure he knows where the saying comes from.

Franks and beans is just a popular dish as far as I know. Franks being something like a sausage. Hem and Haw is when you waste time thinking about what to do, although I always thought it was hum and haw. don't know what Sturm and Drang is about

Never heard of it, myself, so I looked it up. Apparently, it is a "proto-Romantic movement in German literature and music that occurred between the late 1760s and early 1780s", as well as a German play of the same name, per this Wikipedia article.
