Break A Leg For Luck!

It's funny though, how people in showbiz ever came with such terms. I mean, how could you say break a leg to wish someone good luck? Even to ballerinas, it's considered a bad luck to say "Good luck." Logically, a suggestion of saying "Break a leg!" to make them feel better doesn't sound right. But uncannily, to some people, it does.

Maybe it's the showbiz people's way of laughing about misfortunes. As some people say, "When death smiles at you, smile back." Hell, for all I know, they could be saying "Ram a car!" to daredevils, "Go splat!" to parachutists, or "Get elected!" to presidential candidates.
