If a trip to Urban dictionary can clear these up, I think lj's just gotten lazy. "Waitress in the weeds" means a waitress who's swamped with too many tables. That actually makes sense. Most idioms actually make sense if you think about them long enough.

Thank you.

If you know the origin of the idiom, they have logical roots and meanings. And Canary in a coal mine was just a weak example to even have used at all.
