    Actually that saying is a holdover from sailing days. Cannonballs were kept in a frame with Brass railings. In certain cold weather ports the brass contracted enough to pop out and cannonballs would go rolling all over the deck. The frame was called a “Brass Monkey.”
    .
    Fascinating where some of these old sayings come from isn’t it.

    Nah, what’s even more fascinating is the silly fake etymologies people come up with for sayings. Like, did you know that some people really believe that a “brass monkey” was slang for a cannonball holder? Where do people get these absurd ideas?
