Where Did the Name "Wet Hen Cafe" Come From...
If you've ever been so mad your fists are clenched, your teeth are grinding, and you could feel steam blasting out of your ears, you've experienced being "madder than a wet hen".
So where does it come from? And why would it be used to represent a quaint little American café with a French flair?
"Madder than a Wet Hen" is an American expression that seemed to originate in the south. It's popular in rural and farming communities where the behavior of chickens is common knowledge. Why? That's easy. Chickens and water just don't mix.
