Hanging on your every word. But I won't be drawn in this quarter.

Sorry, thought you were going on holiday, not being hanged, drawn and quartered!

Perhaps the difference between hanged and hung is one for Wordwind's list of how grammar has changed?

you might as well get hanged for a goat as for a sheep, but don't get hung up on it.

Coincidence. That's what it was the mists of.

A wonderful piece of Franklinesquerie; it shouldn't go unacknowledged!

i can't believe this croud--
No one has added
hang over

over hang to the list of hang idioms.

I'll hang tight, hoping you get the hang of it, and add some more that i forgot.

Well, if I had ever had one, Krzysztof, I think I would say that I don't like them.

An Fear Rua understands from some of his legal friends in the Four Courts that Chief Justice Hamilton's sporting proclivities lie more towards the soccer code - God bless the mark! - rather than towards hurling or gaelic football. Perhaps that is a hangover from his days palling around with members of the Labour Party beyond in Rathmines, in Dublin. Recent unfortunate controversies have resulted in the departure from the Supreme Court of Mr Justice Hugh O'Flaherty, a decent Kerryman (if that's not an oxymoron), who regularly follows the fortunes of his native county. So, the GAA has lost, literally, a friend in court.
