Neat As A Pin

How is a pin neat? I've never really understood that phrase.

I do think these clothes pins are "neat" in the other definition of the word:
All found at SusyJack*

Time to organize and find things to clip!

  1. Okay, you threw down the gauntlet by asking the first question in this posting. So I tried (which you also probably did) to find using Google some explanation of the old cliche. No luck...there were explanations of what it meant but nothing that 'splained why a pin is neat. And thinking about it I can't really come up with a good reason. Another cliche that I've never been able to understand or find an explanation as to the derivation for is saying something is going "to hell in a handbasket." Maybe you know the meaning of that one and can enlighten me.
