You wouldn't be happy if I smeared your head with honey.
My mom would say this to my brothers and sisters and myself
when we were not satisfied with an item or situation.
She says this ridiculous saying came about when honey was
scarce or valuable.
A similar saying is, "You wouldn't be happy if we hung you
with a gold rope."
