All wet

Origin of Phrases - A

 

All wet

Meaning: To be incorrect, to be wrong.

 

Example: The idea that man could live on bread alone turned out to be all wet. Man needs beer.

 

Origin: Most people consider the state of being in wet clothing to be uncomfortable or undesirable. Witness that most people like to seek shelter from the rain. Hence being all wet is to be in a bad state. Not where one wants to correctly be.
