French Hens' Teeth

Saying you expect something to happen "Quand les poules auront les dents", literally "when hens have teeth" is a pretty common French way of saying "never".

Nearer to the idea of "if pigs could fly" than to "rare as hens teeth".

Parting thot: "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." – Albert Einstein
