No One Can See if There is a Chicken Growing Inside You

I was curious where the phrase "he can't hold a candle to you" came from. I had always assumed it had something to do with candling eggs, but it turns out that it means "He is not worthy of being your apprentice and holding your candle." Sorry, but I think my definition is more intersting. So tell a loved one today that no one can see if there's a chicken growing inside of them. They'll appreciate it.
