What's in a wheelhouse, anyway?

Sometimes, a popular wording may be weird. Occasionally, it seems outright idiotic. Here's a prime example.

Wave at us, if you've heard this one:

"That's right in your wheelhouse."

Or this one:

"It's not exactly in his wheelhouse, but he did a good job with it."

What!?! OK, we understand the intent of the phrase. But it's still awkward and weird. What's in a wheelhouse?

We know this phrase is supposed to evoke images of technological prowess and power. But it still makes us think of hamsters ... or even the dreaded rat race.

You can find this "wheelhouse" design on cups, totes, and other fun products at CafePress.

  1. I am always intrigued by the history of contemporary phrases. Wheel House is quite overused these days. There was a great book out a few years back that explored this territory called "You've got Ketchup on my Mu-mu." I appreciate your tongue in cheek and will be back to see what else you get up to on your blog.
