a saddle on a sow

a saddle on a sow

Something that looks completely ridiculous, abnormal, or out of place. Primarily heard in US. I hate wearing a dress—I always think it looks like a saddle on a sow when I have one on. Seeing someone drive a fancy sports car through this dusty little town of ours is like seeing someone put a saddle on a sow.
